The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), is a European Union law that provides harmonized regulation for investment services across the 30 member          states of the European Economic Area (the 27 Member States of the European Union plus Iceland, Norway and Liechtenstein). The main objective of the Directive was    to increase competition and consumer protection in investment services. MiFID, which has been in effect from 1st November 2007, has been the cornerstone of the       European Commission's Financial Services Action Plan whose measures significantly changed the way EU financial services markets operated. The Directive contains             measures that changed and improved the organization and functioning of investment firms, facilitating cross border trading while creating strategic opportunities.
