Cinnober subsidiary Simplitium delivers new MiFID II service for trading venues

FacilitEx™ helps MTFs and OTFs meet their transparency obligations under the new regulation

Simplitium™, a wholly owned subsidiary of Cinnober and financial services transparency specialist, today announced the delivery of FacilitEx. This is a new service offering that helps trading venues meet their transparency obligations under European regulation MiFID II.

In accordance with MiFID II, trading venues are required to make current pre-trade information available to the public. This includes bid and offer prices, as well as the depth of trading interest at those prices depending on the trading model supported. Venues are also subject to the post-trade reporting obligation which requires firms to report executed trades as close to real time as possible (within one minute for equities and fifteen minutes for non-equities).

The FacilitEx solution has been designed to help trading venues meet these regulatory requirements in a simplified and efficient manner. Developed in direct response to market demand, FacilitEx provides OTFs and MTFs with the infrastructure to meet their MiFID II transparency obligations. The service leverages Simplitium’s extensive experience in providing regulatory transparency solutions and is built upon Cinnober’s leading technology, stability and expertise within the finance industry.

“FacilitEx is a service the industry has asked for and really needs. Simplitium has operated transparency services for the finance industry for over a decade and this offering complements our successful OTC reporting service through TRADEcho,” says Veronica Augustsson, CEO of Cinnober group. “As a company group, we have demonstrated time and time again our ability to deliver efficient solutions that solve industry problems. FacilitEx is yet another example of this and we’re proud to now deliver this offering through Simplitium.”
