The impact on you as one of our clients may vary, depending on the type of activities entered into with you, the location of your contacts at Societe Generale, and/or the Societe Generale entity you interact with.

The purpose of this page is to give you an overview of MiFID II requirements, to explain to you how they impact you and what we need from you in this respect.

It reflects our current view of the regulation and may be adjusted, notably upon clarification from European regulators (<link en disclosure-information mifid-asia-pacific glossary>ESMA or national regulators) or overall adjustment of the industry to this new regulation.

We may update this page so we encourage you to consult this page on a regular basis and to reach out to us if you have any question.
