UnaVista, part of the London Stock Exchange Group, in June welcomed 25 new software vendors to its SFTR partner programme: including Calypso Technology, Equilend, IHS Markit, Trax, the post-trade services arm of MarketAxess, Broadridge and Murex S.A.S.
The new partners will connect directly into UnaVista’s SFTR platform, allowing their clients to report all their required transactions through their existing connections and on to UnaVista’s Trade Repository.
UnaVista recently announced that it will also be working with clearing houses, such as LCH Group’s RepoClear and CC&G, to give their clearing members the option of Assisted Reporting. The firm is also working with SFTR trading venues such as MTS and Equilend to provide a simplified way for their clients to route data straight on to UnaVista for reporting.
Ahead of the SFTR reporting go-live date of April 2020, clients can already simulate their reporting and perform data gap analysis using UnaVista’s SFTR Accelerator tool. The UnaVista Accelerator tool enables clients to test for and to address any data discrepancies, formatting issues or shortages before the regulation goes live.
“We have been working with the industry for a number of years now to create a network of connected market participants. This gives the client options as to how they want to report, to make it as simple as possible for the industry,” says Mark Husler, UnaVista CEO.
