Our Vision for the Marketplace of the Future

Scroll Down

DTCC is evolving and modernizing its business capabilities and technology to deliver the post-trade platform of the future.

We are leading the strategic transformation of post-trade to help solve the most complex operational challenges facing the industry and support our clients.

Powering transformation

As global and market events continue to quicken the pace of change in financial services, client expectations and priorities as well as regulatory expectations are rapidly evolving.

Firms need innovative solutions to overcome today’s challenges and seize new opportunities for growth. Their focus is clear – reduce risk and costs, enhance efficiencies through digital transformation, and support compliance with changing regulatory requirements.

Our commitment is equally as clear – we are undertaking a multi-year transformation to reimagine our products and services, modernize our legacy technology, deliver increased resilience and enhance the client experience.

Strategic transformation

Our strategic reimagination and modernization of business capabilities and technology is focused on four key goals:

PROTECT THE CAPITAL MARKETS

Strengthen DTCC and our industry through leading-edge risk management with resilient technology and processes

TRANSFORM THE POST-TRADE ECOSYSTEM

Shape the future of post-trade by reimagining industry infrastructure and practices to reduce risk and cost for both DTCC and our clients

REARCHITECT OUR SERVICES

Deliver a modern platform focused on client value, simplification, and operational stability

ELEVATE THE CLIENT EXPERIENCE

Provide our clients with flawless daily execution, automated digital interaction, and superior service

Accelerated and integrated settlement

Following DTCC’s leadership in driving industry efforts to implement T+2 settlement in the US equities market in 2017, we continue to advance settlement optimization with initiatives like night cycle re-engineering and Project ION.

The latter is a case study that envisions an accelerated digital settlement service that leverages the latest technologies to move the industry to T+1 with T+0.5 capabilities while maintaining the enormous benefits of netting and DTCC’s risk management.

SECURITIES PROCESSING AND DEMATERIALIZATION

DTCC is leading the industry in building consensus on critical next steps to fully transition securities processing from physical certificates to electronic records.

Dematerialization would reduce the risks and costs associated with manual processing as well as increase efficiency and resilience across the industry at a time when automation is more important than ever.

ITP NO-TOUCH
WORKFLOW

DTCC Institutional Trade Processing (ITP) is an open post-trade infrastructure that eliminates all redundancies and manual processing across asset classes. We will create a unified, single platform where you can manage the entire trade lifecycle, from post-execution to settlement.

DTCC
Report Hub®

The DTCC Report Hub® service is a highly efficient solution for pre- and post-trade reporting that enables firms to meet multiple regulatory mandates across jurisdictions. With comprehensive jurisdictional and regulation coverage, the service helps mitigate compliance risk, enhance operational efficiencies, and drive down costs.

DTCC’s Application Programming Interface (API) Marketplace

The DTCC API Marketplace provides clients, partners, and internal developers with a single, central location for APIs developed by DTCC, streamlining access to services and improving the user experience.

DTCC launched its first API for its Risk Management as a Service (RMaaS). Additional APIs for other DTCC products and services are in development, including one that will allow clients to submit, update, and query new and existing claims against Corporate Action events.

PROJECT WHITNEY:
A DIGITAL PLATFORM
TO SUPPORT
PRIVATE MARKETS

DTCC is exploring bringing the benefits of digitalization, automation and risk and cost reduction to the private markets via Project Whitney. The prototype explores supporting private market assets throughout their lifecycle, including issuance, distribution, and secondary transfer.
