The complete set of reference data to support pre-trade transparency, post-trade reporting and transaction reporting requirements
As financial institutions build their longer-term MiFID II plans and control frameworks, SmartStream RDU provides organizations with both the data and the tools to achieve sustainable operational processes, maintain competitive advantage and, importantly, ensure full compliance with regulatory obligations, across all asset classes including OTC derivatives.
The SmartStream RDU MiFID II service eliminates the complexity of acquiring, normalizing and integrating the complete set of reference data sources required for MiFID II, integrating all MiFID II reference data into a single schema for financial institutions to incorporate into their EDM, regulatory reporting and trading platforms. It offers a choice of delivery method – either file-based or API – depending on a firm’s preference for security of interest (SOI)- based distributions, or on its requirements for supplemental calculations and workflow to enhance its automation goals or service proposition.
MiFID II reporting requirements demand that market participants have a clear understanding of whether a counterparty is, or is not, a systematic internalizer. In association with leading members of the APA community, SmartStream RDU has created a unique Systematic Internaliser (SI) Registry Service. This centralized registry enables market participants to easily identify systematic internalisers for a particular financial instrument, thereby closing a significant gap in the MiFID II regulatory protocols.
