EMIR aims to achieve this by reducing risks via the use of central clearing and risk mitigation techniques, increasing transparency via trade repositories (TR) and ensuring sound and resilient central counterparties (CCPs). ALFI welcomed the European Securities and Markets Authority Consultation Paper and welcomed the opportunity to provide its comments and expertise to the ESMA work stream on this issue.
