The challenge

Accurate and complete transaction reporting is a legal obligation. Yet many financial firms, even those with significant resources dedicated to this complex requirement, are falling short of regulatory expectations.  Quality assurance testing by regulatory specialists Kaizen have found that only 13% of MiFID II transactions are reported accurately.

The consequences of incorrect reporting are serious and include regulatory scrutiny and sanctions, as well as the significant cost and resource involved in remediating incorrect reports.

The solution

The PIMFA Transaction Reporting Academy (TRA) is an innovative, practical and results-focused learning experience that augments your core reporting skills while deepening your knowledge in key areas of the MiFIR reporting requirements.
