The two recent FCA fines for transaction reporting breaches help demonstrate just how important having a sound understanding of the reporting requirements is. Regulators are relentless in their pursuit of complete and accurate transaction reporting and firms, and their senior managers, are at risk If they fail to meet the standards required. The MiFIR reporting requirements are extremely complex and training is an essential element in understanding these requirements and eliminating the errors in interpretation that lead to reporting breaches. The FCA has stated that it has received in excess of 1300 errors and omissions forms relating to transaction reporting and each one of these cases will result in a resource intensive back-reporting exercise. Effective training can help firms avoid the costs of back-reporting and dramatically reduce the risks of sanctions

With the FCA often citing a general lack of expertise around transaction reporting in the firm as a cause for reporting breaches, it is imperative that firms avoid simple reporting mistakes and costly enforcement action by training senior managers, accountable under SMCR and their staff in the interpretation of the reporting requirements.

This MiFIR Transaction Reporting Core Training Course addresses this concern by providing candidates with a thorough grounding on the reporting requirements.
