Release notes: EMT v3.1 has arrived!

In our latest product release, we are making the upcoming version of the European MIFID Template available to our EMT clients.

Kneip is EMT v3.1 ready

On the 12th of February 2021, FinDatEx validated the version 3.1 of the European MiFID Template (EMT) as an interim template to ensure compliance under MiFID II. EMT v3.1 is a temporary template: it will go live on the 10th of March 2021 and will exist alongside EMT v3.0. The changes in version 3.1 have been introduced to allow the reporting on product classification under the Sustainable Finance Disclosure Regulation (SFDR), as well as to support country specific changes for distribution in Germany and France.
