What EY can do for you

Trust in financial services has never been more vital. This is especially true for global trade and transaction reporting. Regulators need complete, accurate and timely reporting to detect market abuse, insider trading and monitor systemic risk. Robust reporting underpins market integrity that society, consumers and regulators rely on.

In addition to the requirement to produce reports, there is a regulatory expectation1 for firms to perform end-to-end testing of their trade and transaction reporting processes. Reporting integrity is another aspect which will be highly visible to regulators and is an area of likely scrutiny.
Many firms are unaware or underprepared to demonstrate completeness, accuracy and timeliness of reports to regulators and the regulators are using data profiling techniques to review the quality of submissions.

The EY Transaction Reporting Advanced Data Analytics platform uses advanced data analytics to test the quality of reporting. It tests full populations of data for global regulations.
