ICMA Bond Market Post-Trade Transparency Directory
ICMA has compiled an overview of current post-trade transparency reporting obligations across multiple jurisdictions from Europe, the Americas and Asia-Pacific. Post-trade transparency generally refers to the public dissemination of executed trade details. As the trade has already been executed, a large array of data points is generally required. Such data could include product identifier (such as ISIN or CUSIP) final price, volume, yield, value, execution time, direction, counterparty and unique transaction ID.

The purpose of the mapping is to provide a consolidated view to compare both regulatory rules and best practice guidance on bond post-trade transparency regimes, as well as details on reporting fields and exceptions. This is a non-exhaustive overview and is intended to be a living document with periodic reviews.
