Insights and Guidance from Leading Policy-Makers and Regulators
Trade & Transaction Reporting Northern European Summit
A Taste of What's on the Agenda....
Hear from leading policy makers in person - including ESMA and the European Commission
Obtain important industry updates on data reporting policy requirements under the Market in Financial Instruments Regulation (MiFIR) and SFTR. The conference includes direct input from senior level policy makers and analysis of updated RTSs and regulatory Q&As. This provides an excellent opportunity to obtain clarifications in relation to the requirements for submission of transaction reports and reference data under MiFIR and - going forward - under SFTR.
Obtain direct feedback on MiFID II / MiFIR reporting experiences since January 2018 - the highs and lows!
10 months into the reporting regime of MiFID II / MiFIR we measure progress made - and evaluate the path ahead. We'll explore common supervisory approaches and practices in the application of MiFIR - notably the Northern TRS (NTRS). What lessons have been learned? What improvements have been made? And where are further changes required? What are the next steps for trade and transaction reporting specialists?
Spotlight on regulatory reporting data quality - Implementing the 'Data Quality Action Plan'
Buy side and sell side firms are under mounting pressure to ensure completeness, accuracy, validity, and timeliness of their reporting - whilst being vigilant for potential over and under reporting. Regulators expect ever greater levels of compliance. Sky-high fines for failures in reporting demonstrate the need for robust quality assurance. How can firms make sure their data for regulatory submissions meet regulatory requirements? You'll explore the latest techniques available to firms seeking to evidence best practices.
Analysing recent developments in the availability and reporting of referential data
Several agencies are involved in optimising the quality, reliability and usability of LEI data which lies at the heart of regulatory disclosures. Delegates will hear updates from the Derivatives Services Bureau - the generator of International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs) for OTC derivatives. The conference also explores the key areas of interactions between market participants and ESMA's Financial Instrument Reference Database (FIRDS).
Hear from key trade repositories, ARMS and middleware providers
The conference brings together the entire reporiting value chain. Regulators, policy makers, buy-side firms, sell side firms, ARMs, TRs, Systematic Internalisers, venues and solutions providers. This is the key regional platform to share best practice and explore current industry initiatives around trade and transaction reporting. A mix of plenary presentations, panel sessions and practical workshop formats make this a lot more than a networking opportunity. You'll take away practical insights unavailable elsewhere.
Practical advice on planning and preparing for SFTR reporting
Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) is the latest regulatory move to enhance transparency in financial markets. The disclosure and reporting component of SFTR presents major compliance challenges for any firm engaged in stock lending, repo or the re-use or re-hypothecation of collateral. The key question for firms is when the new requirements will go live. We bring together the policy makers behind the rules to clarify the SFTR reporting timeframes and examine the implications for firms.
