    SteelEye automatically brings in up-to-date instrument reference data from FCA FIRDS for smarter compliance

    FCA FIRDS is the FCA’s instrument reference data system which records all instruments that have been traded on UK trading venues (ToTV) – as reported by the venues. The system, based on EU’s FIRDS, provides a standardized taxonomy for instruments and helps firms to, amongst other things, determine whether transactions executed in financial instruments in the UK are reportable to the FCA.

    SteelEye has a direct connection with FCA FIRDS. This enables clients to natively access this standardized taxonomy to run smart searches and more easily determine their MiFIR Reporting eligibility. In fact, SteelEye uses FCA FIRDS data to automatically inform clients of their MiFIR eligibility, allowing them to automate the transaction reporting process from start to finish.
