MiFID II and recent supervisory guidance from the Financial Conduct Authority and Prudential Regulatory Authority require firms in scope of the rules to closely supervise their algorithmic trading systems, including the development, testing and deployment of such systems.

FIA has published principles-based guidance to assist firms in meeting applicable oversight requirements. The guidance reflects input from both market participants and vendors.
