Regulatory bodies
Regulatory model
  • Government (Statutory) Model The Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) classifies Euronext’s European cash markets as a regulated market. As such, the real-time monitoring performed by Euronext’s cash market operations and technical support is formally enforced, and our trading rules and procedures are approved by our five regulators. This regulatory and organizational system gives  Euronext the power to efficiently manage crisis situations and extraordinary circumstances. Some of the markets organized by Euronext are exchange regulated, which means they are subject to a body of rules laid down by the market operator, Euronext. They are not regulated markets as defined by the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID). These structured, exchange regulated markets offer simplified access to financial markets and streamlined listing requirements for companies from every sector of the economy, while ensuring compliance with rules on investor disclosure and the control of financial information.
