EMIR applies to financial and non-financial counterparties to derivatives contracts in the EU, as well as to those trading outside the EU under certain circumstances.

- Reviewing investment management agreements and trading agreements to ensure responsibility is properly assigned for obligations introduced by EMIR;
- Operations and technology solutions that maintain the relevant trade, position and collateral data and integrate with trade repositories and perform the requisite reporting and reconciliations required under EMIR.
