London Stock Exchange Group and Boat Services to build MiFID II Trade Reporting solution

The FINANCIAL -- London Stock Exchange Group (LSEG) on September 3 announced it has signed Heads of Terms with Boat Services Ltd to build a MiFID II compliant Trade Reporting service. The new service will offer customers a single, multi-asset, pan-European reporting solution to help them meet their real-time MiFID II trade reporting obligations.

The new service will bring together London Stock Exchange plc and Boat Services’ existing MiFID compliant Trade Reporting services and will complement the Group’s T+1 MiFID and EMIR transaction reporting services, offered through UnaVista. London Stock Exchange will apply for Approved Publication Arrangement status, to facilitate Systematic Internaliser and OTC reporting, replacing current Trade Data Monitor (TDM) status, according to London Stock Exchange.

Nicolas Bertrand, Head of Equity and Derivatives Markets, London Stock Exchange Group said:

“Signing this agreement with Boat Services represents an important step in creating a single, multi-asset Trade Reporting service for European capital markets. Responding to demand from customers, this partnership will bring a comprehensive reporting solution to market quickly, ahead of new reporting requirements under MiFID II.”

Jamie Khurshid, CEO of Boat Services Ltd said:

“We are delighted to be partnering with LSEG. With our combined strengths and complementary services, the partnership offers a one-stop shop to help ease the ever increasing and complex regulatory burden. Reporting services have been at the core of Boat’s business since its inception, now in partnership with LSEG that remains the case. We look forward to expanding and continually enhancing our services, across new asset classes in support of MiFID II and beyond.”
