What is MiFID
MiFID I came into force in 2007 by the EU to regulate financial markets, introducing a harmonized transaction reporting regime across the EU. With MiFID II, the European Commission has introduced amendments to the transaction reporting, greatly increasing both the scope of transactions to be reported, and the data that needs to be reported for each transaction. MiFID II also harmonizes the implementation of reporting by mandating the national competent authorities to use the ISO 20022 format.
The list of financial instruments now covered has been extended to include almost all instruments traded in European markets with particular emphasis on the OTC derivatives market that was previously out of scope for MiFID I. The list of data points to be reported per transaction has been increased to 65, including buyer/ seller information, transaction details, short sell flags and transaction waiver information.
MiFID II does not, in the first instance, apply to investment managers who purely carry out collective portfolio management of Alternative Investment Funds (“AIF) and UCITS.
The basic obligation is for investment firms which execute transactions to report to their home-state national competent authority “as quickly as possible and no later than the close of the following working day (“T+1). This is applicable to all instruments traded on a venue including underlying instruments or indexes of a basket of instruments. Transaction reports must identify both clients and traders or algorithms responsible for an investment decision and its execution.
What defines a transaction under MiFID II / MiFIR
The proposed definition of a transaction covers the “acquisition, disposal or modification of a reportable financial instrument”, including but not limited to:
- A purchase or sale (this is the MiFID I definition);
- A simultaneous acquisition and disposal where there is an obligation to publish post-trade, even if there is no change of beneficial ownership (e.g. when exercising options); and
- The entering into or closing out of such an instrument.
Exclusions from the definition of transactions include:
- Securities financial transactions (e.g. stock lending, repurchase agreements);
- Post-trade assignments and novations in derivatives;
- Portfolio compressions;
- The creation, expiration or redemption of instruments resulting from pre-determined
- contractual terms or mandatory events where no investment decision is occurring;
- A change in the composition of an index after a transaction has taken place.
