If you consider switching to a dedicated service provider and want to benefit from REGIS-TR's service, you are alyways more than welcome. The time is now. We will definitely make sure that you will be able to report correctly also after October 28, 2017.
One of the most frequently asked questions recently has been whether we are able to convert an EMIR-compatible report format into a format that could be used for FinfraG reporting.
The answer is simple. We can. According to our analyis there is just one additional field (type of collateral) which could, if even applicable, be populated with default values or values related to an e.g. master agreement.
The second difference is that under FinfraG for FX instruments also the value in the second currency has to be reported, which can be easily calculated by using the first notional value and the respective e.g. forward rate.
