Market Data Fees Disclosures
Article 11 of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/567 of 18 May 2016 as published in the Official Journal of the European Union on 31 March 2017 (the ‘Transparency obligation’), requires that, ‘Market operators and investment firms operating a trading venue and systematic internalisers shall disclose the price and other terms and conditions for the provision of the market data in a manner which is easily accessible to the public’. This document is intended to cover the relevant disclosures required by the Transparency obligation, and for ease of accessibility to the public is published on the Tradeweb website.

(e) How the price was set
With MiFID go-live we made real time market data available for the first time. Demand for the data was hard to predict and subject to several significant unknowns. These included: the number of liquid instruments, the percentage of transactions that are deferred, and the quality of the data.
As direct costs of the provision of market data we identified market data sales, market data business management, APA build, APA support, distribution infrastructure, and website built. Joint costs were identified by our market data and finance team. They include Trading Infrastructure, MiFID platform compliance and MiFID conformance. The cost allocation methodology used is consistent with our general approach to cost allocation in the company.
The pricing for market data was set as such that it would cover the cost and generate a reasonable margin based on highly uncertain revenue projections. As of today the actual fees generated from market data do not cover the cost.
