MiFID II

MIFID II TRANSACTION REPORTING - ARM

Experience, Expertise and Reliability Customized to Your Needs

Increased Scope of Transaction Reporting

MiFID II will introduce extended reporting obligations on market participants, compared to the existing requirements under MiFID I. MiFID I focused on reporting cash equities transactions to local regulators. With MiFID II the scope will expand to several non-equity asset classes and significantly increases the amount of data that needs to be reported.

MIFID II will also have impact on parties that are free from transaction reporting obligations under MIFID I, such as non-investment firms and non-EU firms. Those new parties will have an indirect reporting obligation, where the trading venue will through the updated Rules and Regulations demand their participants to report the transaction details to the venue.

Under MiFID II, market participants will have the option of reporting these transactions themselves, or with the help of an Approved Reporting Mechanism – ARM. Nasdaq will offer an ARM service as part of its comprehensive Regulatory Reporting platform. 

A user friendly solution with competitive pricing, the Nasdaq Regulatory Reporting platform already includes MiFID I reporting, EMIR TR reporting and REMIT reporting. By leveraging Nasdaq’s years of reporting experience and expertise with the ever-changing regulatory landscape, market participants can meet their regulatory MiFID II transaction reporting obligations.
