London Stock Exchange Group Announces UnaVista Compatibility With Alternative Instrument Identifier

  • LSEG facilitates FSA’s requirement for customer reporting of exchange derivatives through UnaVista
  • UnaVista’s reference data to assist customer Aii integration

London Stock Exchange Group today announced that their leading transaction reporting service UnaVista is now approved to report all exchange traded derivatives using the Alternative Instrument Identifier (Aii).

The announcement follows the FSA’s formal declaration of the new date for mandatory reporting of exchange derivatives using Aii as the 13 November 2011. UnaVista clients can commence reporting exchange traded derivatives from the 8 August 2011 when the FSA’s new ZEN system goes live.

Mark Husler, Head of Business Development at the London Stock Exchange Group said:

“Offering transaction reporting for derivatives ensures UnaVista customers have a single solution for all their regulatory reporting needs across all markets and asset types.”

To help customers with the introduction of the new Aii code, UnaVista also provides global derivatives reference data covering over 80 markets, mapped to ISIN and SEDOL symbologies.
