Market Abuse Regulation
The Market Abuse Regulation (EU) N:o 596/2014 (MAR) and the Directive on criminal sanctions for market abuse 2014/57/EU (MAD II) entered into force for the most part on 3 July 2016. The key aim of MAR is to preserve financial market integrity and improve investor protection.
MAR covers market abuse, i.e. insider dealing, unlawful disclosure of inside information, market manipulation and public disclosure of inside information. In addition, MAR places obligations on, inter alia, persons discharging managerial responsibilities within issuers and their closely associated persons, and on market operators and investment firms. MAR also regulates market soundings, investment recommendations, and statistics or forecasts disseminated by public institutions liable to have a significant effect on financial markets.
MAR is a directly applicable regulation, and MAD II has been transposed into national law. MAR involves extensive Level 2 regulation, adopted as Level 2 Commission Regulations. The Commission has adopted Level 2 Regulations on, inter alia, the technical procedures relating to the public disclosure and delayed public disclosure of inside information, the formats and templates for notification and public disclosure of managers’ transactions, and the format of insider lists and their updating procedure.
MAR applies to, for example, the following:
MAR applies to issuers of bonds that are traded on a regulated market or on a multilateral trading facility.
Consequently, under MAR, issuers of bonds are governed by requirements concerning public disclosure and delayed public disclosure of inside information, maintenance of insider lists, notification and public disclosure of transactions by managers and persons closely associated with them and the trading restrictions applicable to them.
MAR applies to
Moreover, market manipulation and the related prohibition expand so as to apply also to spot commodity contracts on certain conditions and behaviour in relation to benchmarks.
The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) issues interpretations and practical application guidelines related to the implementation of MAR regulation.
ESMA’s MAR-related interpretations and guidelines may change the interpretations and guidelines issued by the FIN-FSA on this website, in which case the FIN-FSA’s interpretations and guidelines concerning MAR will be replaced by those of ESMA. However, any such change in the FIN-FSA’s interpretations and guidelines will have no retroactive effect.
