ESMA consults on extending aggregated trade repository data

In response to problems with the comparison and aggregation of data across trade repositories, the European Securities and Markets Authority has launched a public consultation on the extension of data available to the public in trade repositories as stipulated in the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR).

According to ESMA, there have been problems with public data on trade repositories, so the authority is therefore setting out several proposals to tackle this by:

  • enhancing the data made publicly available by trade repositories;
  • increasing transparency to the public in general; and
  • allowing the publication of certain figures that will be required by EU regulations such as MiFID II and the Benchmarks Regulation.

The consultation launched this week asks stakeholders to give their views on ESMA’s proposals, with particular focus on:

  • avoiding double counting of cleared derivatives; 
  • data aggregations for commodity derivatives and derivatives using benchmarks; and
  • general technical aspects of publication of aggregate data.
