MiFID II, the MiFID II Directive (2014/65/EU) and the Markets in Financial Instruments Regulation (600/2014), recast and repealed the original Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (2004/39/EC) (MiFID).
MiFID II is a legal framework governing the requirements applicable to investment firms, trading venues, data reporting service providers and third-country firms providing investment services or activities in the European Union (EU) and aims to reinforce and add to the existing structural, transparency and investor protection requirements under the original directive.
As a part of the United Kingdom’s (UK) withdrawal from the EU (commonly referred to as ‘Brexit’), the MiFID II rules were ‘onshored’ in to the UK legal and regulatory framework, generally continuing the application of the rules to authorised firms providing investment services and activities in the UK.
Respectively under the onshored UK MiFID II rules and the EU MiFID II rules, we are required to inform you that Ninety One UK Limited is an investment firm operating in the UK, and that Ninety One Luxembourg S.A. is a management company offering investment services in the EU. Ninety One UK Limited has its registered address at 55 Gresham Street, London, EC2V 7EL and is authorised and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority, 12 Endeavour Square, London, E20 1JN. Ninety One Luxembourg S.A. has its registered address at 2-4 Avenue Marie-Therese, L-2132 Luxembourg and is supervised by the Commission de Surveillance du Secteur Financier, 283 Route d’Arlon, L-1150 Luxembourg.
All communications between us will be provided in English unless we agree otherwise from time to time.
Customers of authorised financial services firms, such as Ninety One UK Limited, are protected under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme ('FSCS') up to limits as set out by the FSCS.
