Networking Break
The Drive to Improve Data Quality within Derivatives Reporting

Following the financial crisis, regulators across the globe implemented new regulations to improve transparency resulting in the creation of swaths of new data – most significantly across trade and transaction reporting data which provide vital information to regulators on the health of markets and potential market abuse. However, with many European regulators citing data quality as a major issue to be addressed in 2022, what have we learnt from the financial crisis and how can we ensure that the data we are now collecting and contributing to as an industry is accurate and can be put to best use? .
