Thomson Reuters Adds to DataScope Reference Data to Support MiFID II

Thomson Reuters has extended the reference data on its DataScope platform to help firms comply with Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) requirements. Ahead of the January 3, 2018 MiFID II compliance deadline, Thomson Reuters has added extra information on equities, warrants, options, futures, commodities, funds, government and corporate bonds, collateralised mortgage obligations (CMOs), municipals, and over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives.

DataScope can also help users with MiFID II transparency and reporting requirements by linking reference data, corporate actions, entity data, end-of-day and intraday data.

Stuart Martin, managing director of risk information and learning services at Thomson Reuters, says: “The challenge is clear, reference data has become a real focus point for our customers as they prepare to comply with MiFID II. We are committed to providing solutions that enable our customers to meet growing regulations and the DataScope MiFID II reference data suite of solutions is another step forward.”

The extension of reference data on DataScope, is one of a number of recent MiFID II initiatives made by Thomson Reuters. These include enhancements to the Eikon financial analysis solution for research unbundling, a Legal Entity Identifier (LEI) profiling service, a partnership with BestX for foreign exchange transaction cost analysis, an enhanced analytics platform for best execution and systematic internaliser (SI) determination, and improvements to the company’s tick history feed.
