We are pleased to announce that London Stock Exchange Group has received all the required regulatory approvals in order to continue to offer EU MiFID II and UK equivalency reporting services. This ensures we can continue to provide transaction and trade reporting services after the United Kingdom's departure from the European Union (Brexit) in the event of a no-deal Brexit.

UnaVista TRADEcho B.V., an affiliate of London Stock Exchange Group plc, has been approved by the Dutch Authority for Financial Markets (AFM) to operate an Approved Reporting Mechanism (ARM) and an Approved Publication Arrangement (APA) for the EU MiFID II requirements.

London Stock Exchange plc will continue to operate an ARM and APA to provide transaction and trade reporting services under the versions of MiFID II and MiFIR that are incorporated into UK law pursuant to the European Union (Withdrawal) Act 2018 (UK Transaction Reporting Services).
