Trade & Transaction Reporting Services

Identify failings in the completeness, accuracy, and timeliness of your MiFID/MiFIR and EMIR regulatory reporting with our team of experts.

The requirement to report details of transactions has existed for many years but, as regulations have evolved, this has become increasingly onerous and complex. The FCA has identified improved regulatory reporting as one of its supervisory priorities, having already levied fines of varying sizes totaling more than £130m for reporting errors or omissions under MiFID and EMIR.

Our award-winning trade and transaction reporting solutions help your firm identify failings in the completeness, accuracy, and timeliness of your trade and transaction reports. The prompt identification of errors can significantly reduce the cost and reputational risk from regulatory scrutiny and enforcement as well as the operational burden of re-reporting.
