The Market Abuse Regulation (MAR) took effect on 3 July 2016 and we now receive Suspicious Transaction and Order Reports (STORs) rather than Suspicious Transaction Reports (STRs). As the information we receive is in a more structured form we are able to offer greater transparency in the data we publish.

For the first time, we are including a breakdown of the reports received in each of four principal asset classes – equities, fixed income, commodities & foreign exchange. 

While there has been a notable increase in the number of reports received under the new STOR regime, consideration should be given to the changes in reporting requirements mandated by MAR. We recommend a cautious approach when comparing the STOR figures to those reported under the STR regime.
