New documents from ESMA – MAR and others

ESMA yesterday issued several documents, including:

  •  MAR Q+A (here) – this update of the questions and answers document adds details on managers transactions and investment recommendations, which will primarily be of interest to financial companies, for the time being.
  • Updated guidelines table (here) – listing of applicable guidelines documents issued by ESMA across different financial regulations.
  • Updated technical standards table (here) – listing of applicable technical standards documents issued by ESMA and their status of adoption by the European Commission  and objection period of the Parliament and Council across different financial regulations.

The tables are a useful tool for navigating the many regulatory documents that define financial regulations.
