Product summary

Evolving global regulations, including MiFID II, have led to heightened focus on how commission dollars are allocated.

For buyside firms, managing multiple CCA/CSA programmes can be complex and operationally inefficient. IHS Markit enables buyside firms to virtually aggregate, view and manage CCA/CSA credits. Our automated reconciliation engine uses sophisticated matching criteria to identify discrepancies. Integration with our Evaluations platform allows seamless retrieval of broker vote results to support commission allocations.

Sellside firms can participate in the aggregation of their client’s CCA/CSA balances in a cost effective manner. The platform can also be used as a portal for clients to view direct CCA/CSA activity, including balances, payments and trade reconciliations.
