Xtrakter is entering into consultation with members of its user community and other market representatives, to discuss the development of a European managed trade repository for all asset classes.
“Xtrakter has a long established history of operating a data repository and is already the leading source for OTC [over-the-counter] fixed income data in Europe. We currently provide a range of regulators, aggregators and end clients with trade matching, transaction reporting and data services…Given our position as a major reporting mechanism, the significant changes that will emerge following the current European Markets Infrastructure Regulation consultation, it is vitally important we consider in conjunction with members of our user community whether it is appropriate for us to develop a European managed trade repository.” said Yannic Weber, chief executive officer (CEO), Xtrakter.
Jason Waight, director, product management, Xtrakter, said: “As Xtrakter has an established history in providing data, regulatory reporting services to the global capital markets and maintaining an existing data repository…it is perceived that this is a natural progression for our firm, some of our clients have already indicated their desire for a European managed trade repository.”
