Increased transparency requirements for pre- and post-trading

The new regulation will contain changes to the transparency requirements for pre-trading and post-trading. Insufficient transparency can have a negative effect on pricing, which negatively impacts fragmented markets. The high requirements already in place on the share market today are to be further strengthened and expanded to include all financial instruments. Exceptions from the general transparency requirement (waivers) will continue to exist – applicable depending on the characteristics of the respective asset classes.
