qThe paper compares the EU and US securities regulations, and specifically MiFID with the corresponding US regulations. It primarily focuses on the regulatory and supervisory framework, trading venues, and the provision of investment services. The paper argues that the architecture and some of the rules regarding securities markets are different in the two regions, but the objectives and some of the outcomes are similar.
