The move paves the way for MiFIR transaction reporting through the UnaVista ARM to be integrated into the Report-it suite of reporting controls.

We look forward to helping Risk Focus extend their high-quality solutions to our market leading platform.

UnaVista MiFID Transaction Reporting and EMIR Trade Repository will join the DTCC GTR (Global Trade Repository) and CME’s ETR (European Trade Repository), already supported on the Report-it platform.

Wendy Collins, Head of Partnerships at UnaVista, commented: “We are pleased to have Risk Focus join the UnaVista Partner Programme and look forward to helping them extend their high-quality solutions to our market leading platform.”

Partnering with UnaVista will provide tremendous value to our shared client base and is absolutely critical for us to fulfil our mission of being the leading provider of control and compliance software solutions for global trade and transaction reporting.”
