Detecting and Avoiding Transaction Reporting Errors Under MiFID

Transaction reporting provides regulators with fundamental data needed for market surveillance. A recent ACA Compliance Group (ACA) presentation examined the transaction reporting regimes under the E.U. Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID I) and the recast Directive (MiFID II), including enforcement activity under MiFID I; the transition to the reporting regime under MiFID II; common errors and compliance issues under both regimes; monitoring and reconciliation of reporting; and handling of reporting errors. The program was moderated by ACA director Bobby Johal and featured ACA senior principal consultants Matthew Chapman and Charlotte Longman. This article presents the key takeaways from the presentation.
