The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) is a European Union Law that provides harmonized regulations for investment services across the member states of the European Economic Area.
The main objectives of the Directive are to increase competition and consumer protection in investment services and to introduce the concept of 'maximum harmonization', which places more emphasis on home state supervision.
Among the various principles of MiFID, great attention is paid to the Best Execution principle, meaning that firms must take all reasonable steps to obtain the best possible result in the execution of an order for a client. The best possible result is not limited to execution price but also includes cost, speed, likelihood of execution and likelihood of settlement and any other factors deemed relevant.
