New query profiles for MiFID II / MiFIR and PRIIPs

As of January 2018, the requirements of the EU Directive on the markets for financial instruments (MiFID II) and the affiliated regulation (MiFIR) must be implemented by the market participants in production.

In the following, as announced in our news release from 05.12.2017, we would like to describe the query profiles for MiFID II / MiFIR and PRIIPs with the associated query costs:

In addition, the existing query profiles Stock exchanges & trading practices (X) and Issuer data (M) will be extended.

These query profiles will be available soon via WMACCESS Internet.

MiFID II - Reference data

The query profile MiFID II - Reference data contains all relevant data for MiFID II and MiFIR. For example, the extension of the existing transparency regulations, the investor protection and the adjustment of the market infrastructure.
The data for target market classification and cost transparency are assigned to their own query profiles.

MiFID II - Target market

The rules in MiFID II require the manufacturer / issuer of financial instruments to define a target market for each instrument. This must be considered by the selling agency.

The query profile MiFID II - Target market covers all manufacturer data, as well as the information on the target market (Product Governance).

MiFID II - Cost transparency

In addition to the definition of the target market, the detailed disclosure of costs (ex ante and ex post) is one of the main innovations and challenges from the new requirements of the Financial Markets Directive and Regulation (MiFID II / MiFIR).
As a service provider of securities-related information, WM Datenservice will represent the costs arising from the instrument; which are independent of the respective financial service provider.
The Cost transparency data is divided into two categories / query profiles:

  • Data with master data character (only current value, low change frequency) in the query profile MiFID II - Cost transparency
  • Date-related data with complete history in the query profile Ongoing indicators (J)

Enhanced wmView & wmProfile query profile selection

Did you already know...?

For licensing reasons, some GD/GV fields are not included in the detail display for the work area (G) master data in wmView.
Instead, such WM data fields are often integrated exclusively in the wmProfile query profile of Investment Fund Characteristics or Fund Classifications / AIF (previously Risk management II / AIF).

The Fund Classifications / AIF query profile contains data for the classification of investment funds according to AIFMD and for the reform of investment taxation 2018. For example, the WM fields:

  • GD504D Applicable tax procedure as of 1 January 2018
  • GD504K Investment funds with partial tax exemption as per section 20 of the investment tax law
  • GV1D7 Rate of the tax free income as per fund type and investor group as per section 20 of the investment tax law, historical classification

This query profile will be explained in more detail soon.

Disabling unencrypted HTTP communication

For many years we are supporting the encrypted access to the WMACCESS website via HTTPS as well as the safe login procedure parallel to the unencrypted HTTP communication.

The unencrypted transmission of sensitive information, such as the WMACCESS username and the associated password, will be deactivated as of 18.06.2017. HTTP will be automatically redirected to the encrypted connection.

In the first place this concerns the URLs for logging on and using the WMACCESS application to query WM data. On the login page of WMACCESS we will remove the unencrypted login option ("standard login procedure").

Test:

Successful: You are viewing this page through an HTTPS connection. Your browser is not affected by the announced action.

Problems using HTTPS?

Should you not be able to access the homepage and the WMACCESS web application due to technical restrictions with HTTPS, please do not hesitate to contact us.

Why do we perform this step only in the year 2017:

Unfortunately, very old browsers (such as Internet Explorer 6) or older operating systems (eg Windows XP) were used in the financial industry in the past few years. However, these browsers or operating systems only support older and unsafe protocols (SSLv2 / SSLv3) or do not provide support for modern secure cipher suites. Users of these platforms had to and so far could use the HTTP protocol.

Preview:

Starting from the 7th of August 2017, the entire Internet presence under our domain wmaccess.com will automatically and exclusively use HTTPS.
