Edited By: Marco Ventoruzzo, Sebastian Mock
- Investment business — Market abuse — Market Abuse Directive (MAD) — Regulated activities
This chapter discusses the role of the Market Abuse Regulation in private law. An infringement of the MAR has an important effect on the private law relations between the infringer and the investing public. As regulatory provisions of this nature are classified as public law, any failure to comply with the MAR will also affect the infringer’s relationship with the competent financial supervisor. In other words, the relevant financial supervisor can enforce these provisions under administrative law in the event of an infringement. This is essentially no different from the situation under of the Market Abuse Regulation’s predecessor—the (former) Market Abuse Directive (2003/6/EC), as implemented in the various national legal systems.
