SteelEye, the compliance technology and data analytics firm, has been selected by the world-class investment manager, Schroders.
The FTSE100 listed global investment manager with over £500bn assets under management deployed SteelEye in July 2020.
SteelEye is designed to provide clients with full visibility of their entire MiFID II transaction reporting workflow, including efficient and automated tools that enable them to easily and seamlessly manage any over or under-reporting, as well as data validation errors. SteelEye provides:
• Sophisticated MiFIR eligibility checks
• Analytics on rejection handling from both the Approved Reporting Mechanism (ARM) and National Competent Authority (NCA)
• MiFIR data validation rules
• The ability to edit transactions directly within the platform
• A full audit trail of all activity
• Automatic submission schedules
“The SteelEye implementation has helped us to improve the level of control and accuracy we have around our MIFID II transaction reporting,” said Keith Frimpong, Global Head of Operations Change at Schroders. “We selected SteelEye because of the quality of their technology, the expertise demonstrated by their team and their willingness to support our tight implementation timelines.”
Schroders operates from 34 locations across Europe, the Americas, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa. The two century-old business offers both asset management services to institutions and private investors as well as a wide range of wealth management services which focus on preserving and growing their clients’ wealth.

We are honoured to partner with Schroders and delighted they recognise the value in our reporting solution. This reassures us that our data-centric compliance platform truly addresses an industry need,” added Matt Smith, CEO of SteelEye.
