The Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (‘CySEC’) recently carried out a review of the quality of data reported to Trade Repositories by Cyprus Investment Firms (‘CIFs’)

The purpose of the Review was to assess the quality and timeliness  of data reported by CIFs to Trade Repositories.

Findings;

  • CIFs were not updating positions as they were terminated;
  • No reconciliation
  • A significant number of reports submitted to TRs by CIFs were rejected.
  • No monitoring of errors and exception management process
  • Unpaired/unmatched trades

Regulated Entities are advised to nominate a person within their firm, who will be responsible for the daily monitoring of EMIR reporting.
