Eze Software Expands Trade Reporting Options With NEX Regulatory Reporting


Continues to Enhance MiFID II Support With APAs

, a premier provider of investment technology, is growing
its MiFID
trade reporting support by expanding its strategic collaboration
with NEX Regulatory Reporting, a business area within NEX Group plc. As
an Approved Publication Arrangement (APA) provider, NEX Regulatory
Reporting supports clients in their MiFID II obligation to publish pre-
and post-trade data and reports as soon as possible after execution. The
collaboration bolsters a continuously expanding roster of Eze Software's
MiFID II compliance offerings.

Under MiFID II, in a bid for improved transparency, ESMA requires
investment firms to report trade data to APAs in near real-time; within
one minute for equities, and 15 minutes for fixed income. NEX Regulatory
Reporting will publish reports on trades on behalf of clients on its
public website where the regulator can monitor that markets are fair.

Eze Software has a longstanding partnership with NEX Regulatory
Reporting, which serves as the Approved Reporting Mechanism for
transaction reporting for clients under the scope of MiFID II. Eze and
NEX have 18 mutual clients. Eze supports standardized reports for the
delivery of the 65 transaction data points required under ESMA
specifications. Being able to choose the same provider for trade
reporting will help Eze clients simplify workflows. Eze Software will
soon have connectivity to three different APAs.

"In a post-MiFID II environment, we are focused on helping clients meet
their regulatory requirements most efficiently. We're excited to extend
our collaboration with NEX Regulatory Reporting to cover trade
reporting, and will continue to grow our partner community to provide
more choice in reporting options that will work best within client
workflows," said Bill
, Managing Director, Product & Engineering.

"The collaboration means Eze clients can consolidate their trade and
transaction reporting with one provider and benefit from the operational
efficiencies this brings," said Collin Coleman, Head of NEX Regulatory
