ESMA publishes first MiFID II position management controls for commodity derivatives

Moment of Truth: ESMA now requires the online publication of RTS27 and RTS28 reports

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has issued today a first badge of position management controls under the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II).

MiFID II requires Member States to ensure that an investment firm or a market operator operating a trading venue which trades commodity derivatives apply position management controls.

Investment firms or market operators operating trading venues have to inform their national competent authority (NCAs) of the details of position management controls who in turn inform ESMA, which shall publish and maintain on its website a database with summaries of the position management controls.

This information will be updated by ESMA based on further notifications by NCAs.
