MiFID II Eligibility and Reference Data

MiFID II Eligibility and Reference Data

Many challenges will face organisations meeting their reporting obligations under MIFID II, none more so than the initial identification and verification of trades required to report. 

The provision of reliable data to determine whether a trade must be reported often proves onerous and difficult. 

UnaVista, as part of our MIFID II Transaction Reporting suite of products, is offering an eligibility data file which can be used by firms not only to determine trade eligibility under MIFID II but also enrich their reference data.

This will include near real time data on:

  • EEA Venue-listed instruments, collected direct from the exchanges.
  • OTC Instruments with underlying on a EEA venue
  • Non-EEA Exchange Traded Derivatives with underlying on an EEA market, from over 70 exchanges around the world.
  • Non-EEA Exchange Traded Derivatives, where the underlying is an index and where at least one of the consititutents is traded on an EEA market
  • Non-EEA instruments which are soley traded outside of the EEA, but where the underlying is traded within the EEA.

More comprehensive - UnaVista's file includes data that can not be found in FIRDS, such as index constituents, underlying security to depository receipts and ISINs for third country derivatives.

More up to date - UnaVista's reference data will be available faster as we are complementing the process from additional data sources, that enables us to identify newly listed instruments prior to ESMA and FCA FIRDS.

More accurate - UnaVista takes ESMA and FCA’s FIRDS data sources which we then enrich with other data sources in order to cover derivative instruments listed outside of the EEA and UK, so you can ensure it is the most accurate on the market.
