TRAction Rolls Out New Regulatory Reporting Solution

Regulatory reporting specialist TRAction has launched a new MiFID II reporting solution utilising Refinitiv data to help UK and European investment managers meet Best Execution requirements.

With around a fifth of all investment firms in talks with the FCA about errors in their transaction reporting under MiFID II, according to an FOI request carried about consultancy Duff & Phelps, demand is growing for more sophisticated Best Execution analysis.

The Best Execution Monitor from TRAction compares transaction reporting data against Refinitiv data from the relevant time a trade has been executed. The software then displays statistics about the quality and pricing of execution.

“With numerous firms still not getting their transaction reporting up to scratch two years on from MiFID II, there has never been a more pressing need to understand the quality of trades being executed,” explains Quinn Perrott, co-CEO of TRAction. “Our new solution leaves no stone unturned for investment managers. All trades will be required to be monitored, not just the ones required under the transaction reporting rules, but those trading on non-MiFID II trading venues.”

“While well intentioned and a step in the right direction, we found the MiFID II best execution legislation vague and lacking clear procedures,” adds Craig Allison, of FP Markets. “Using the TRAction fintech platform, the procedure and logic is clearly defined giving us the ability to view all transactions as compared to the equivalent Reuters data as well as being displayed in a graphical report.”
