STOCKHOLM (Reuters) - New rules to bring more transparency to bond markets will not necessarily hurt liquidity if done carefully, the head of Europe’s markets regulator said on Thursday.
“All liquid markets are transparent markets,” European Securities and Markets Authority head Steven Maijoor said. “Transparency is a prerequisite for confidence and the willingness to trade.”
Maijoor said it was too early to say if further policy measures were needed.
