Eze Software has extended its Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) reporting capability through collaboration with NEX Regulatory Reporting, an Approved Publication Arrangement (APA) under the regulation that meets client needs to publish pre- and post-trade data and reports as soon as possible after trade execution. The collaboration bolsters Eze Software’s MiFID II compliance solutions and adds to its existing relationship with NEX, which also acts as an Approved Reporting Mechanism (ARM) for transaction reporting under MiFID II.
Eze Software expects to expand its APA connectivity and trade reporting capability to three APAs in the short term. In terms of transaction reporting, it is already working with NEX to support 18 mutual clients that must produce standardised reports including the 65 transaction data points required by ESMA under MiFID II.
Bill Neuman, managing director, product and engineering at Eze Software, says: “In a post-MiFID II environment, we are focused on helping clients meet their regulatory requirements most efficiently. We’ve extended our collaboration with NEX Regulatory Reporting to cover trade reporting and will continue to grow our partner community to provide more reporting options that will work well within client workflows.”
Collin Coleman, head of NEX Regulatory Reporting, adds: “The collaboration means Eze clients can consolidate their trade and transaction reporting with one provider and benefit from operational efficiencies.”
