NEX Regulatory Reporting, a NEX Group business, operates within NEX Optimisation, which helps clients simplify complexity and optimise resources.

Powered by Abide Financial (established in 2011), the NEX Regulatory Reporting platform lowers costs, eliminates operational risk and provides regulatory reporting effectiveness.

Through the business’s multi-regime reporting hub, regulatory obligations are translated into future proof compliant solutions while its specialist advisory teams interpret the impact of evolving markets regulation relating to trade and transaction reporting.

In addition to local European regulatory environments (EMIR, MiFID/II, SFTR, REMIT), NEX Regulatory Reporting provides specialised reporting services for entities subject to international regulatory regimes such as Dodd Frank, ASIC (Australia) and MAS (Singapore).
