Regulatory trade and transaction reporting can be complex and unwieldy. It ties up firm resources that could be otherwise used in the delivery of your products and services.
Different regions around the world have different reporting obligations, so if you’re a cross-border business or aspire to be one, you’ll face multiple sets of regulatory regimes of which you must get on top of. These include EMIR, MiFIR/MiFID II, SFTR and Best Execution in Europe, ASIC Rules in Australia, MAS and Best Execution Requirements in Singapore, HKMA Reporting in Hong Kong, IIROC in Canada and the US regime.
TRAction charges a similar fee as if you were to report directly to the relevant trade repository (TR) or approved reporting mechanism (ARM) for almost all of the regimes listed above, so we can save you both time and money.
Benefits of Using a Delegated Reporting Service
The fundamental benefits of using a delegated reporting provider include:
- relieve burden on human and internal resources assigned to trade reporting;
- understand the trade reporting obligations;
- ensure the reporting requirements and industry standards are met; and
- stay informed and up-to-date with any regulatory change.
We make the process a whole lot easier and more cost-efficient than if you were to devote your internal compliance, legal and management resources (or in some cases external compliance and legal resources) to managing your trade/transaction reporting obligations.
Data Extraction, Conversion and Enrichment
Our solution covers the most commonly used trading platforms via direct extraction and/or the computational handling of trading platform outputs. Platforms include MetaTrader 4, MetaTrader 5, cTrader, Currenex, IRESS and Market Pulse. For firms operating on multiple platforms through a back office, you can either opt for direct integration with your platform to automatically extract trade data or have your trading files sent to TRAction in csv format, depending on what is most appropriate for your business.
After data extraction, we convert, enrich and validate your data into the required reporting format. This process ensures your trade data it meets the submission requirements prior to final submission to TR/ARM.
Reporting Trades on Your Behalf
A key benefit to delegating your reporting to TRAction is that we do all the necessary and often complicated onboarding work for you with the TR/ARM. We manage any exceptions in your data before and after submitting your trade/transaction information.
Specialist Advice and Compliance Support
Understanding the complexity of the reporting requirements is one step; applying them to your business creates an added layer of difficulty. We do this work for our clients by explaining their requirements in an easy-to-understand manner, interpreting unnecessarily complicated industry jargon. Additionally, we provide regular industry updates so that clients stay informed of regulatory changes.
Costs of TRAction Services
All of our services add significant value to your business and come at a similar cost to what you would otherwise pay if you went directly to a TR or ARM. We bill you directly and manage your relationship with the TR or ARM on your behalf to ensure your reporting runs smoothly.
Through the industry experience of TRAction’s staff and the knowledge gathered engaging with regulators and trade repositories, TRAction is well-placed to help you navigate the complexities of complying with the trade/transaction reporting rules.
