Germany - FRQ - MiFID II: EU Covid-19 recovery package to include "quick fixes" ahead of comprehensive MiFID II review

The EU Commission is discussing urgent changes to address the economic effects of Covid-19. Those changes will likely include "quick fixes" to the MiFID II framework. These are designed to relieve investors, in particular professional investors, of certain resource-intensive requirements related to investor protection. Larger-scale amendments to MiFID II, in particular regarding market infrastructure, will be addressed in the upcoming MiFID II review, which is unlikely to happen before 2021.
