On 31 May 2018, the FSMA and the British (FCA), Dutch (AFM), French (AMF), Irish (Central Bank of Ireland) and Portuguese (CMVM) financial market authorities, together forming the Euronext College of Regulators, signed a new Memorandum of Understanding (‘MoU’) on the coordinated regulation and supervision of Euronext. This MoU supersedes the MoU previously signed in March 2015 and marks the integration of the Central Bank of Ireland into the Euronext College of Regulators. This comes after Euronext NV completed the acquisition of the Irish Stock Exchange, now Euronext Dublin, on 26 March 2018.
The Euronext College of Regulators was set up in order to establish a common coherent and efficient regulatory framework between the different national competent authorities supervising Euronext. It came into existence, shortly after the Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris Stock Exchanges merged into Euronext in 2000 and has evolved over the years taking into account the evolution of Euronext.
The new MoU was signed in Brussels during the Chairmen’s Committee meeting, under the FSMA’s Chairmanship of the Euronext College of Regulators.
