DTCC creates Deriv/SERV LLC to solve industry-wide issues in the over-the counter (OTC) credit derivatives marketplace. Payment Reconciliation Service (PayRec) is designed to automate payment reconciliation for credit default swaps, followed by the creation of an electronic confirmation matching system, DSMatch.
DTCC pioneers ground-breaking derivatives services by establishing the Trade Information Warehouse (TIW), the industry's first infrastructure for the creation of an official, or "gold," record and the centralized asset servicing of credit derivatives.
The International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) and Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) endorse DTCC as the preferred service provider to build and manage global trade repositories (TRs) for cleared and uncleared derivatives across multiple asset classes in order to carry out the Group of 20’s (G20’s) recommendations for risk mitigation in the over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives market following the 2008 global financial crisis.
DTCC creates GTR to fulfill its mandate from the industry and in 2012 launches its first trade repository (TR) in the U.S. for compliance with Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) derivatives mandates.
DTCC launches a re-architecture initiative in Hong Kong, followed by Europe, to simplify the GTR structure by creating a platform and infrastructure that can function across jurisdictions and products to serve each of DTCC’s TRs and their clients.
In anticipation of the forthcoming Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) in Europe and the UK, GTR builds out its functionality beyond derivatives to accommodate SFT and will begin providing trade reporting and data enrichment to support clients’ SFTR compliance when the rule takes effect in 2020.
DTCC establishes DTCC Data Repository (Ireland) Plc (DDRIE), a Dublin-based, ESMA-registered TR to serve the post-Brexit EU27’s trade reporting needs. DDRIE will not be active until Brexit takes effect, at which time the existing London-based DTCC Derivatives Repository Plc (DDRL) will lose its ESMA authorization and will come under the authority of the UK’s Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) to meet the UK’s reporting requirements.
In January the Swiss Financial Market Supervisory Authority authorizes GTR as a Foreign Trade Repository in Switzerland, enabling GTR to fully support both European Market Infrastructure (EMIR) and FinfraG regulations from a single platform.
DTCC Deriv/SERV encompassing DTCC’s derivatives and trade repository business is now known as Repository & Derivatives Services (RDS).
As part of an end-to-end trade reporting solution, DTCC introduces pre- and post- reporting capabilities in addition to its core trade repository offering to help clients streamline their regulatory reporting needs. Capabilities provided by Xceptor, a leader in data-centric intelligent automation and Droit, the leader in real-time transactional compliance round out a robust range of capabilities available to clients via the DTCC Report Hub.
To help clients to fully optimize their use of GTR services, DTCC began offering GTR Consulting Services to improve overall business operations, increase efficiency, and reduce risk.
