Recorded Webinar: Managing the transaction reporting landscape post Brexit: MiFID II, SFTR, EMIR

16 March 2021

The transaction reporting landscape has, for many financial institutions, expanded considerably in size since the end of the UK’s Brexit transition period on 31 December 2020 and the resulting need for double reporting of some transactions to both EU and UK authorities. It has also changed dramatically following the UK government’s failure to reach equivalence agreements with the European Commission, leaving financial institutions facing a slew of changes to reporting requirements.

Changes to MiFID II reporting include the necessity to switch from ESMA’s FIRDS and FITRS data sources for transaction reporting to similar, but slightly different, FCA systems in the UK. Under UK MiFIR, an EU investment firm that has executed transactions via a UK branch or vice versa will have a dual reporting obligation.UK EMIR coverage means branches of third-country firms are not in scope of the UK EMIR reporting regime, although branches of UK established firms outside the UK are in scope and must report derivative transactions to an FCA-registered trade repository. UK SFTR differs from EU SFTR in excluding the need for non-financial counterparties to report under the regulation.

These changes are a huge burden for financial services firms in terms of data, cost and resource, but in the absence of equivalence they must be made.

This webinar will detail how firms are bridging the reporting gap between EU and UK regulation, identify the problems and solutions of common stumbling points, and help you ensure ongoing compliance in an increasingly complex world of transaction reporting.

Listen to the webinar to hear discussion on:

  • The UK regulatory transaction reporting regime
  • How it differs from the existing EU regime
  • Data and data management changes UK firms must make
  • How to use technologies, tools and services to achieve efficiency
  • Further changes to watch out for as 2021 unfolds
