GEN 2.17.1 Guidance

1. An Authorised Market Institution authorised to Operate an Exchange may carry on the Financial Service of operating a Multilateral Trading Facility, as defined in GEN Rule 2.22.1(1)(a), provided it has an endorsement on its Licence that permits it to do so (see GEN Rule 2.2.12).
2. An Authorised Market Institution may also act as a Trade Repository if it has an endorsement on its Licence that permits it to do so (see GEN Rule 2.2.13). Acting as a Trade Repository does not constitute a Financial Service but is subject to the additional conduct requirements in GEN App 5.
