Stakeholder Education

About Government Relations

DTCC’s position at the center of the financial services industry gives us a unique perspective on how global markets operate and ways in which systemic risks and costs can be reduced. We leverage this expertise and knowledge to serve as a resource for market participants, regulators, lawmakers and other stakeholders on the post-trade processing of financial transactions, data and information as well as issues related to financial reform and global financial markets. DTCC’s focus on stakeholder education and engagement is designed to enhance understanding of the critical role of financial market infrastructures in protecting the stability and integrity of the global financial system.


A variety of materials are available to assist stakeholders in enhancing their understanding of global financial reform and critical industry issues.
