U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission grants Wall Street MiFID research reprieve

WASHINGTON, Oct 26 (Reuters) - The U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) said on Thursday it would grant Wall Street a 30 month-grace period on complying with sweeping new European Union investment research rules.

The regulator said it has issued three so-called ‘no action relief’ letters that will allow market participants to comply with the research rules outlined under the EU’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II - or MiFID II - in a way that is consistent with U.S. federal securities law.
