The Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) is once more highlighting the importance of the market abuse requirements since the Market Abuse Regime (MAR) came into force in July 2017. The regulatory has specifically highlighted to issue to buy-side firms.
The Market Abuse Regime (MAR) and Criminal Sanctions Directive (CSMAD), commonly known as MAD II, are an extension of the Market Abuse Directive (MAD), implemented in 2005. The regime resulted in an EU-wide Market Abuse Regime across financial services. It established a framework for developing orderly flows of information to maintain a level playing field for market participants.
MAD II introduced criminal sanctions of insider dealing and market manipulation as well as aligning international interpretations of MAD forming a harmonised approach across Europe and the rest of the financial world.
