Self-reporting vs Delegated Reporting under EMIR, MiFIR and SFTR

Self-reporting vs Delegated Reporting for EMIR, MiFIR & SFTR

With so many compliance obligations to keep on top of, have you considered delegating your reporting obligations?

The resources (financial, people, technology) required for ongoing compliance need to continually improve processes at an investment firm to stay abreast of changing regulatory requirements.

TRAction understands the struggles that many firms are facing. We have compared the steps required to complete an onboarding process with us as opposed to onboarding with an Approved Reporting Mechanism (ARM)/Trade Repository (TR) directly.

Additionally, we have summarised the top 3 ways in which delegated reporting can benefit you and maximise the effectiveness of your team.

Self-reportingReporting through TRAction
Limited Internal Resources


Meeting the reporting requirements may required re-training existing staff or hiring additional staff. The former can divert human resources from existing projects and the latter adds to employment expenses.

Free up Internal Resources


Free up internal resources and allow your team to focus on your firm's core offering.

Burden on Infrastructure


Firms need to spend time and resources to develop ways of generating transaction reports in the correct formats. This in addition to the procurement and storage of all the required data.

Reduce Infrastructure Cost


Limit the infrastructure expenditure you incur. We have IT specialists who can work with your IT team to adjust your systems to be reporting-ready, again without additional charge.

Trade Repository Fees


Firms can directly engage with an ARM for MiFIR or TR for EMIR and SFTR. Charges are generally a fixed monthly or annual account fee plus a per-transaction charge.

Cost Efficiency


Reduce the need to obtain and pay for external advice. At TRAction, we provide regular regulatory guidance in our fees to improve your reporting obligations without engaging expensive external consultants. Best of all, we don't add these charges to our base reporting offering.
