Protecting the Marketplace Through Active Policy Engagement
DTCC’s Government Relations team works collaboratively with lawmakers, regulators, trade associations and other key stakeholders in the U.S., Europe, Asia and Australia to help shape global legislative and regulatory policies on critical industry issues.
We share our unique insights gained through over 45 years of experience with government officials to advocate for sound public policy on issues that impact both global and regional financial markets.
Government Relations closely coordinates with DTCC’s business lines including our U.S. FSOC-designated Systemically Important Financial Market Utilities (SIFMU) providing Clearing and Settlement Services, our Institutional Trade Processing (ITP) offering and our Repository & Derivatives Services (RDS). From industry focus areas such as market structure and cybersecurity to data harmonization, fragmentation concerns and equivalence considerations, DTCC shares its unique perspective with key stakeholders globally. Government Relations continues to closely monitor and engage as appropriate regarding targeted legislative and regulatory activity, working with policymaking bodies across jurisdictions. For example, in the U.S. the team engages with a range of stakeholders including the Administration and Congressional committees of jurisdiction such as Senate Banking and House Financial Services, as well as congressional leadership and various issue-focused task-forces and caucuses. Across the European Union, the Government Relations team liaises with key regulatory and legislative bodies including the European Commission and Parliament, ESMA, the EBA and ECB in addition to the National Competent Authorities (NCA) and national Central Banks. In the UK, the team coordinates with groups including the FCA, HMT and the Bank of England. Financial services policymakers across Australia, Hong Kong, Japan and Singapore are also priorities for DTCC’s government relations engagement.
