UnaVista is an approved Trade Repository(TR) for EMIR and Approved Reporting Mechanism (ARM) for MiFIR and will apply to be a TR for SFTR when the window is opened by ESMA in 2019. We have built a partner community consisting of Independent Software Vendors and Consulting Firms to assist clients with fulfilling reporting obligations across these regulations.
The SFTR FAQ: Insights from 10 Experts has received contribution from subject matter experts from our partners; Bovill, Charles River Development, Citihub Consulting, D-Fine, Excelian, Finastra, Gordon Dadds Financial Markets, IHS Markit, K&E Consulting and MAP Fintech. These UnaVista partners have shared their opinions on these key issues by answering some of the most frequently asked questions on SFTR.
Whilst many investment firms would have experienced transaction reporting under EMIR and MiFIR, securities financing transactions have never before been caught under any reporting obligation. Therefore, the number of complexities affecting firms is vast, and ranges from sourcing data from vendors, to obtaining a correctly generated UTI. Other key issues for firms include the types of reporting modules which will be made available by the Trade Repositories (TRs), data management and enrichment, and obtaining correct LEIs. There is also a genuine concern from firms around providing so many data fields, many of which are required for the reconciliation process. UnaVista has several software & data partners who can connect to the UnaVista system to assist clients with the provision of this data.
