Financial Reform in Europe

Lawmakers and policymakers from across Europe have been working for more than two years to create a cohesive pan-European regulatory framework. Their efforts have focused on crafting new regulation, such as the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), revising 2007’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) and establishing new supervisory authorities like the European Securities Markets Authority (ESMA), to protect the economic security and stability of the European Union.

DTCC contributes to this debate by engaging with representatives of the European Union, European Parliament and the European Commission, as well as with political and regulatory leaders in key European nations, to share our expertise and experience in both cash and derivative instrument post-trade processing.

We support policies that contribute to the European aims of: 

  • Building a single European market 
  • Enhancing the efficiency of the European market and promoting competition 
  • Reducing risk within the European market through the use of trade repositories 
  • Strengthening the European regulatory regime
