The AMF is pursuing its commitment to making the Paris financial market more appealing by launching AGILITY, a programme devoted to guiding financial firms through the French authorisation process. It will provide a range of services, notably helping financial firms authorised in the UK set up in France. With 2WeekTicket pre-authorisation, they can begin the process of opening offices in France in just two weeks.
This consultation paper is published in the context of MiFID II recast, ahead of the implementation of the new provisions on payment for research services used by investment firms providing investment advice on an independent basis or portfolio management. This paper aims at answering the main questions raised by this reform, in particular regarding the equity market. Please send comments by 28 October 2016 to: firstname.lastname@example.org.
