ABBL Response to the ESMA MiFID II/MiFIR Consultation Paper

First and foremost, in the ABBL’s opinion, ESMA has occasionally gone a bit too far regarding the limits between level 1 and level 2 measures. Furthermore, in some respects the nature of the proposal is extremely prescriptive and formalistic, up to the point where the association wonders if the objectives and interests of investors are really met. There may be operational difficulties, as evidenced in the response to the consultation paper, but above all the balance between costs and benefits of some requirements is not proportionate. Producing information just to send it to the bin is at the very least frustrating, and costly. Many of the required information and signatures are a pure compliance exercise which for the client may often translate into unproductive and complex tasks that are rigid and go against providing tailor-made solutions.

The result has been consolidation, the repositioning of banks within international groups and – in certain cases – banks disappearing entirely from Luxembourg. Yet these moves were necessary to ensure a sustainable future for the financial centre.
