We have a strong background in regulatory reporting, for example, having a long standing MiFIR Transaction Reporting WG that played a fundamental role in the drafting and implementation of MiFIR reporting.

We work closely with fellow trade Aassociations to identify how other regulations (such as EMIR, CSDR and SFTR) impact our members. Our most recent activity was a joint response with ISDA to the FCA consultation on UK EMIR.

Central Counterparties (CCPs) is a key issue to our membership, a matter which is central to cross- border transactions and the conduct of business. From a UK perspective, a key issue will be the new rule-making powers that will be afforded to the Bank of England (for both CCPs and CSDs) as part of the Future Regulatory Framework Review, a consultation to which UK Finance provided a response.

We are also considering the wider evolution of the post-trade landscape and infrastructure. Issues such as the potential impact of technology and how post-trade processes and infrastructure can be developed on a wider basis will become increasingly important to our members, regulators, and the wider industry over the coming years.
