DTCC's ability to identify, measure, monitor and report risk is critical to preserving the secure operations and resiliency of the capital markets. In the past several years, dynamic forces have been reshaping the landscape of the financial industry, and there are now greater information demands from internal and external stakeholders. DTCC is enhancing its risk management processes and technology with the Risk Transformation Initiative (RTI).

The RTI was launched in early 2013 and is a major, multiyear initiative that will significantly strengthen how DTCC manages, analyzes and reports risk. The goal of the RTI is to design a state-of-the-art, world-class risk process that enables DTCC to apply sound risk judgment even more effectively and proactively while efficiently meeting expanding informational requirements. When fully implemented, the program will further enhance DTCC's ability to manage and mitigate risk for clients and the financial system. The effort is also an essential component of DTCC's ability to build an even stronger foundation from which to develop future business opportunities and realize its strategic vision.
