Main EU initiatives covered the year before by activities falling under the scope of the Transparency Register:

Markit has been actively and constructively engaged in the discussion regarding regulatory reform of financial markets. We regularly provide regulatory authorities with our insights on current market practice, for example in relation to the confirmation of derivative transactions, efficient means of reporting transactions to Trade Repositories, clearing connectivity, or portfolio reconciliation practices. We have also advised regulatory bodies on approaches to enable timely and cost-effective implementation of newly established requirements, for example through the use of multi-layered phase-in or by providing participants with a choice of means for satisfying regulatory requirements. Additionally, we work closely with the industry and other relevant third-party providers to ensure adequate preparation, testing and data loading.
