Trax, a leading provider of regulatory reporting, trade matching and capital market data services, has reached agreement with Droit Financial Technologies (“Droit”), the provider of real-time global regulatory decision systems for capital markets, to offer an eligibility determination and regulatory reporting service to help firms meet the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) for derivatives.
The Trax Insight reporting system will automatically assess reporting eligibility according to Droit’s regulatory eligibility information for EMIR, one of 15 regulatory reporting frameworks supported by Droit. This will enable clients of both Trax and Droit to better fulfil their regulatory obligations and trace transaction flow based on Droit’s leading regulatory rules-based decision engine, ADEPT.
The combination of Trax and Droit helps improve reporting efficiency, ultimately allowing firms to comply with their regulatory obligations with greater confidence. By connecting to this service, firms can easily satisfy their EMIR derivatives reporting requirements, as well as take advantage of Trax’s cross-regulatory experience to satisfy their broader multi-asset class MiFID I transaction reporting and MiFID II/MiFIR trade and transaction reporting requirements.
The partnership with Droit, as well as Trax’s trade repository connectivity, allows Trax to provide eligibility and reporting services across the full suite of derivative reporting jurisdictions.
“Broad regulatory change is impacting all areas of the trade lifecycle from the front- to the back-office. The combined technological prowess and expertise of Trax and Droit forms a compelling solution for firms to manage the challenge of complying with EMIR across trading and operational functions,” said Chris Smith, Head of Trax.
“We’ve seen first-hand the enormous pressures firms now face with managing complex regulatory obligations for derivatives. The integration of Droit and Trax offers a robust set of tools to help firms cope with these pressures by delivering intelligent, transparent and proven operational technology,” said Satya Pemmaraju, Founding Partner and CEO of Droit.
