Request details

Overview

We are enhancing our Multilateral Trading Facility (MTF) to meet MiFID II customer execution requirements for FX derivatives.

In accordance with the implementation of MiFID II – and with it a varied market structure – MTFs must adhere to new rules and requirements that affect reporting, record keeping, systems and controls from January 2018.

Under MiFID II, we will operate FXall QuickTrade (our independent electronic foreign exchange trading platform) as an MTF, along with Forwards Matching.

Trading enhancements

  • We will support FX Forwards, swaps, NDFs and options via FXall request-for-quote (RFQ). Spot Matching will be removed from the MTF, while Forwards Matching will remain for swaps.
  • We will publish an updated MTF rulebook, and we are set to release new GUI versions of FXall and FX Trading to accommodate required data fields.

MTF reporting obligations

  • We will meet our obligations as an MTF operator for Trade Reporting by reporting all MTF deals in real-time to an Approved Publication Arrangement and by transactions reporting deals done by  non MIFID authorized firms at T+1 to the Financial Conduct Authority.
  • To help you with reporting and record keeping requirements, we are bolstering our post-trade straight-through processing (STP) feeds to accommodate new data fields.
  • We will meet our obligations as an MTF operator for Trade Reporting (real-time to an Approved Publication Arrangement) and transactions reporting (T+1 to the Financial Conduct Authority).

STP enhancements

  • To help you meet your reporting and record keeping requirements, we are bolstering our post-trade straight-through processing (STP) feeds to accommodate new data fields
  • MiFIR requires financial firms executing transactions in financial instruments to report details of the transactions to the national regulators
  • Transaction reporting to be completed no later than following working day: T+1
  • Clients should seek advice from their own Compliance teams on what their specific obligations are.
