The countdown has now started! From this month it is now less than a year to go until investment firms 8767 RTS 7 non-equities post-trade transparency reporting needs to reduce from 65 minutes to five minutes. This new implementation comes in three years after the original MiFID II go-live.

MiFID II Pre- and post-trade transparency

With under a year to go, firms need to incorporate this change into their book of work technologically, procedurally and in some cases, culturally. At Kaizen, we provide accuracy testing on MiFID II post-trade transparency reporting (PTT) data to check that you are meeting these close-to-real-time requirements and that your data is correct. This includes checking whether you are reporting within the required timescales and alerting firms where they consistently do not meet the deadline after execution. 

Whereas RTS 6 transparency has been relatively straightforward due to the electronic nature of equities trading (hence the one minute limit), the non-automated nature of voice trading, as an example, still causes problems for firms in terms of meeting the current close-to-real-time 65-minute deadline imposed by the regulation. It is commonly recognised that firms still struggle to meet publication after 65 minutes, whether that’s changing a trader 8767 s habit, automating trading or even introducing FIX messaging protocol which  believe it or not  still isn 8767 t used by all firms. So the reduction to five minutes may really impact firms and may alert the national competent authorities to focus more on these transparency deadlines.

Articles 69–78 of MiFIR outline the transparency requirements and obligations for investment firms across asset classes as defined in Regulatory Technical Standards (RTS) 6 and 7.  These include:

Fund managers often identify matching interests to buy and sell financial instruments for their various funds. When executing these interests they perform &ldquo internal crossing&rdquo Tradeweb has developed this functionality.

RTS 7, Article 7 states : 8775 …for the first three years of application of Regulation No 655/7569, within 65 minutes after the execution of the relevant transaction thereafter, within 5 minutes after the execution of the relevant transaction.”

MiFIR Article and RTS 77 introduce the obligation for a trading venue to report details of transactions in financial instruments traded on its platform by a firm which is not subject to the MiFID regulation. Tradeweb has developed solutions to make the provision of relevant information as easy and flexible as possible, and to limit the impact on workflow.
