Recorded Webinar: How are you managing the need to demonstrate trade reconstruction?

31 May 2018

Best execution under MiFID II and other current regulations presents practitioners with a daunting challenge: How does my firm provide evidence that it acted in the best interests of the client? The response necessarily requires storage of vast quantities of data from multiple sources and communications channels, for long periods of time – in the case of MiFID II up to seven years.

Trade reconstruction has emerged as a particularly challenging requirement as MiFID II, Dodd Frank and other global regulations force trading firms to show evidence that they acted according to their best execution policies. Firms will need to capture, store and query (often on-demand) any and all data and communications that could relate to a transaction (as prescribed by Article 16[7] of MiFID II), whether or not the transaction takes place.

The requirement is onerous, and the penalty for non-compliance has yet to be tested under MiFID II. Meanwhile, firms continue to wrestle to determine their best approach.

Listen to the webinar to learn:

  • What types of data you need to be collecting – across structured and unstructured data, electronic, voice, social media and paper-based data
  • How to identify required data and manage data collection from across disparate, siloed sources
  • What potential security risks to look out for
  • How to manage policies for ensuring the relevant data is recorded and stored in the right way
  • How to reconstruct a trade with minimal manual effort and ensure access in a timely manner
  • How to turn the regulatory requirement into a business advantage by anticipating breaches, and protecting your assets and reputation
