MiFID II

Make the move from MiFID to the MiFID II/MiFIR regime as smoothly as possible. FactSet's integrated suite of solutions and industry-leading partners help you address research unbundling, execution and order management, post-trade transparency, and client reporting.

Research Unbundling and Commission Management
Under the MiFID II investor protection rules, investment firms may no longer bundle research payments with execution commissions. Firms may opt to pay for research out of P&L or use client funds via a research payment account (RPA). FactSet provides solutions for precision entitlements, consumption tracking, broker resource tracking and evaluation, and RPA services.

Our partners include:

  • ONEaccess, a Visible Alpha company, for resource tracking, corporate access calendar, and broker evaluation
  • Liquidnet, for commission management including research payment accounts (RPAs), commission sharing agreements (CSAs), and broker evaluation
  • Instinet, for commission management, including research payment accounts (RPAs), commission sharing agreements (CSAs), and broker evaluation

Best Execution
MiFID II raises the bar on best execution. With FactSet Portware, you get a versatile execution management system (EMS) that's flexible enough to implement your firm's order execution policy and rigorous enough to achieve and demonstrate your adherence to the new best execution standard, including the latest multi-asset TCA capabilities. From comprehensive market data to optimized trade routing and data capture, you gain an EMS with multi-asset capability. To support MiFID II compliance, we also offer periodic RTS 28 quality execution, cost exception, suspicious trade reports, or FIX re-certification.

Order Management
FactSet's flexible order management solution (OMS) will ensure your consistent adherence to MiFID II's order allocation and handling rules. Leveraging a customizable OMS ensures your clients' orders are being handled fairly and expeditiously, and enables multi-regime compliance through a user-tailored compliance rules library and engine.

Trade and Transaction Reporting
FactSet has partnered with leading service providers, offering certified OMS and EMS connectivity to APAs and ARMs, to deliver modular solutions supporting real-time and T+1 trade and transaction reporting under MiFID.

Cost and Risk Disclosures
Under MiFID II investor protection rules, firms must meet new transparency requirements on costs and risks and perform appropriateness and suitability checks based on manufacturer and distributor target market definitions.

Our regulatory document and data solution, Prime RDDS, provides MiFID II classification data on securities. These integrated solutions enable product governance, frontline advisory, and customer-facing portals with relevant information, processes, and tools to fulfill the MiFID II investor protection requirements.
