IFD/IFR introduces new capital requirements for investment firms
Investment firms provide a range of services and activities to investors in financial markets that are crucial for the functioning of the financial markets and include, among others, the reception and transmission of orders, the provision of investment advice, discretionary portfolio management and trading on own account.
The specific risk profiles of investment firms are not always properly captured by the banking prudential framework (CRD IV1/ CRR2). Taking this diversity into account, the European Parliament has adopted the Investment Firm Directive (IFD3) and the Investment Firm Regulation (IFR4).
