UnaVista EMIR Delegated Reporting

What is EMIR Delegated Reporting?

EMIR is designed to increase the transparency of European ETD and OTC markets and monitor systemic risk. As of 12 February 2014 details of all derivative transactions must be reported to an approved Trade Repository such as UnaVista if one of the counterparties is a registered entity within the EEA.

UnaVista has created a suite of delegated reporting products to help reduce the pressure on the back office infrastructures of firms who fall within EMIR’s jurisdiction. The model enables any counterparty to a trade to ‘delegate’ its reporting obligation to the other counterparty to the trade or to a third party service provider.

How UnaVista’s EMIR delegated reporting works

UnaVista’s delegated reporting solution allows any counterparty to a trade to delegate reporting to their counterparty or to a third party service provider. The delegated reporting model also allows firms to take on the reporting responsibilities of multiple clients. This can be firms who do not have the resources to adjust to the requirements of EMIR or firms that consider delegation a more efficient model by which to report. UnaVista create bespoke delegation products for each individual client – the model below outlines the ‘delegated Reporting’ concept:

 1.    ‘Delegating’ counterparty provide details of their static data (ie broker ID) to its counterparty or third party administrator.

2.    The ‘submitting’ party then submits their client’s data if they are a third party administrator, or both their data and their counterparty’s data in any standard UnaVista format

3.    UnaVista then applies bespoke logic, formatting and feedback for submitted data including details of rejected fields on customised management dashboards

4.    If the ‘delegating’ counterparty requires access rights to the data submitted to UnaVista, the delegated reporting product can be customised to allow:

         I.    View-only access

         II.    Ability to edit some fields

         III.    Ability to submit and edit some fields (ie valuation fields)
