The European Directive on “Markets in Financial Instruments” (known as MiFID) established a comprehensive regulatory framework on order execution that is meant to allow competition in Europe between various trading venues. Such venues include regulated markets, multilateral platforms for trading and order-execution conducted by investment services providers, particularly through systematic internalisation, i.e., the Investment Service Provider matches orders to buy and sell financial instruments from clients in-house, thereby running an “internal” market.
As such, MiFID is aimed at:
- establishing competition between order-execution venues;
- harmonising the terms for offering investment services;
- making it easier for service providers to use the European “passport”.
It covers financial instruments and defines new obligations in terms of:
- rules of conduct and best execution;
- rules for evaluating and informing investment clients;
- respect for market integrity, transaction declaration and record-keeping;
- organisational principles to be complied with in order to prevent conflicts of interest;
- post-trade transparency.
La Française has made its policies on Best Selection and Conflicts of Interest, which meet these regulatory requirements, available to its clients.

Policy on providing reports
La Française recommends that, before subscribing to its products, clients contact their usual advisor in order to make sure that these products are appropriate and meet their needs.
All subscriptions must be based on legal documents (prospectus or fact sheet from the Fund, articles of association, regulation, quarterly reports and annual reports). The documents are available upon request from each asset management firm, from their website or from the Autorité des Marchés Financiers (AMF - French securities regulator). Tax treatment depends on each client’s individual situation and this may be changed later.
In accordance with Article 314-76 of the AMF's general regulations, the client will receive, upon request, details on the compensation paid to its financial advisor for selling the product.
Methods of processing subscriptions: what consequences will the Dodd-Frank Act have for you?
The Dodd-Frank Act – impact on clients subscribing to vehicles from La Française Group’s French asset management firms.
Prospects/clients/distributor partners are informed that the products presented on this website can only be offered in jurisdictions, countries and states where the sale and promotion of said products is allowed.In this respect, the Dodd-Frank Act, which has entered into force, imposes specific restrictions on asset management firms and all other stakeholders on the French market with respect to the sale and promotion of their products. More specifically, LF REM can no longer sell its real estate investment company (SCPI) units to associates and clients subject to United States legislation due to their place of residence.LF REM therefore cannot record subscriptions from clients in this category on the share register of these SCPIs.For other investment vehicles managed by La Française Group’s asset management firms, it is worth consulting your advisor to find out whether you may subscribe to a particular vehicle, based on whether your tax status renders you subject to United States legislation.
