    See it in action

    The SteelEye platform is complemented with ESMA FIRDS data for optimized and automated compliance

    ESMA FIRDS is a data system covering the scope of financial instruments included under MiFID II. It was established by the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) in cooperation with the national competent authorities (NCAs) in Europe. The system records all instruments that have been traded on EU trading venues (ToTV) – as reported by the venues or NCA – providing a standardized taxonomy of instruments. Among other things, the system helps firms determine their MiFIR reporting eligibility.  

     SteelEye has a direct feed into ESMA FIRDS. This means clients using SteelEye can run smart searches using the ESMA FIRDS standardized taxonomy and more easily determine their transaction reporting eligibility. In fact, SteelEye uses FIRDS data to inform clients of their MiFIR eligibility automatically, making it possible for firms to automate their transaction reporting from start to finish.
