The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA), the EU’s financial markets regulator and supervisor, has today published its latest edition of the Spotlight on Markets Newsletter.
Your one-stop-shop in the world of EU financial markets focused in June on important topics such as the launch of the ESMA Data Strategy 2023-2028, the release of the 2022 Annual Report and our first corporate video. With the Data Strategy, we want to contribute to reducing the compliance burden for companies and facilitate data reporting by means of increased standardisation and the use of modern IT solutions across the reporting process and the entire data lifecycle.
ESMA’s key achievements mentioned in the Annual Report included developing its new Strategy which will guide its work over the years 2023-2028. ESMA also delivered extensive work throughout the year to respond to the consequences of the Russian invasion of Ukraine. More on the milestones here.
In addition, we have just published our second report on national rules governing the marketing of investment funds under the Regulation on cross-border distribution of funds. ESMA analysed the effects of national laws, regulations and administrative provisions governing the marketing communications for investment funds.
The European Supervisory Authorities launched a public consultation on the first batch of policy products under the Digital Operational Resilience Act (DORA). This includes technical standards in the areas of ICT risk management, major ICT-related incident reporting and ICT third-party risk management.
