AFB Virtual Practice Workshop: Effective Preparation for EMIR Reporting

Since 2014, EEA based foreign banks have been caught by the complex derivative reporting requirement in EMIR.  Impacted foreign banks need to report not only the reporting of trade execution, but also any updates to that trade until its closure, and potentially collateral, valuation and position reports too.

The AFB is delighted to partner with Duff & Phelps, a Kroll Business for this Practice workshop, one of the leading firms guiding banks on how to effectively execute their EMIR regulatory reporting.  The workshop will be broken down into 3 sections, firstly recapping the fundamentals of EMIR reporting, then moving to post Brexit changes including some known cross boarder issues, and finally the future of EMIR reporting, and what firms need to prepare for.

Section 2 – Onshoring of EMIR and Cross Boarder issues

  •        Post Brexit changes – regulatory differences, practical applications, delegated reporting.
  •        Oversight by the FCA – Regulatory oversight and National Competent Authority.
  •        What to do with additional guidance from ESMA?         
  •        Reporting requirement in two jurisdictions?
  •        Branches, as mentioned by the FCA and ESMA.
  •        AIFs and AIFMs – esp. non-EU AIF reporting.

Section 3 – Looking ahead

  •        EMIR Refit – what this is, how it will impact firms and the timeline.
  •        Increase in reportable fields.
  •        Significant changes.
