MiFID II Post-Trade Transparency Reporting

It’s not just transaction reporting under MiFID II that firms need to be compliant with – compliance with real-time trade reporting is expected by regulators too.

What is Post-Trade Transparency Reporting?

Articles 14–23 of MiFIR outline the transparency requirements and obligations for investment firms across asset classes as defined in Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) 1 and 2.  These include:

  • Near to real-time reporting to the market via FIX (Financial Information eXchange)
  • One minute for equity and equity-like products
  • 15 minutes for non-equity products (reducing to five minutes by 2021)
  • Reports are sent to an Approved Publication Arrangement (APA) for publication to the market
  • Field requirements are limited to the trade financials (less than 15-20 fields)
  • Anonymised and aggregated reporting to avoid reverse engineering.
