GTR Asia - ASIC
GTR led the industry in serving the operational and regulatory needs of Australia’s derivatives marketplace by securing the first Australian derivative trade repository (ADTR) license granted by the Australian Securities and Investment Commission (ASIC). GTR provides trade reporting services in Australia via the legal entity DTCC Data Repository (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (DDRS).
Firms subject to ASIC derivatives reporting rules may submit their applicable derivatives contracts directly to DDRS or by delegated submission through a counterparty that uses DDRS trade reporting services. In either case, firms must first onboard to DDRS. For delegated reporting, all parties to the delegation must complete all requisite documentation and be onboarded with DDRS.
Read ASIC final rules.
GTR Asia - HKMA
Banks required to report their derivatives transactions to the Hong Kong Monetary Authority (HKMA) do so through the country’s trade repository, the Hong Kong Trade Repository (HKTR). In this jurisdiction DTCC acts as a reporting agent for these firms: firms submit their transactions data to DTCC Derivatives Repository Plc (DDRL), which in turn submits the reports to HKTR.
DDRL is headquartered in London and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) and the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA).
GTR Asia - MAS
In Singapore GTR provides trade reporting services via DTCC Data Repository (Singapore) Pte. Ltd. (DDRS), the only trade repository currently approved by the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
The next stage of MAS’ phased Reporting Regulations for OTC derivatives contracts traded in Singapore takes effect 1 October 2019. The rules, set forth in the Securities and Futures Act (SFA), cover additional types of entities and significant derivatives holders.
Firms subject to MAS reporting obligations may submit their contract data directly to DDRS or by delegated submission through a counterparty that uses DDRS trade reporting services. In either case, firms must first onboard to DDRS. For delegated reporting, all parties to the delegation must complete all requisite documentation and be onboarded with DDRS.
