LSE announces UnaVista’s earlier MIFIR transaction launch

Risk Focus Inc., a provider of regulatory control and testing solutions for global trade and transaction reporting, today announced that it has signed up to UnaVista’s Partner Program. This paves the way for MiFIR transaction reporting through the UnaVista ARM (Approved Reporting Mechanism) to be integrated into the Report-it suite of reporting controls. UnaVista MiFID Transaction Reporting and EMIR Trade Repository will join the DTCC GTR (Global Trade Repository) and CME’s ETR (European Trade Repository), already supported on the Report-it platform.

As LeapRate reported earlier this year, UnaVista has made user acceptance testing available for MiFIR transaction reporting 17 months ahead of schedule.

UnaVista is London Stock Exchange Group’s global regulatory reporting platform and a transaction reporting ARM in Europe, processing billions of transactions a year for thousands of clients across all asset classes. This partnership will enable Risk Focus to deliver the independent controls demanded by ESMA’s MiFIR regulations.
