Networking for Standardized Data Reporting

Standardized Data Reporting (SDR) helps fund companies and insurance carriers better monitor trading frequency and market timing by investors whose transactions are housed in omnibus and super omnibus accounts.


Networking is the industry standard for the streamlined exchange of investor account-level information, delivering efficiencies by securely automating a host of activity reporting and account maintenance transactions between DTCC fund and broker/dealer clients.

SDR is a feature of Networking that supports the operational needs of fund companies and intermediary firms to comply with SEC Rule 22c-2. SDR can also be used by insurance carriers and their distribution partners that are required to comply with the rule.

SDR supports the following functions:

  • Data requests from fund companies
  • Acknowledgments from intermediaries
  • Summary responses from intermediaries
  • Detailed responses from intermediaries

SDR Flow Chart

Using the SDR stream within Networking, fund companies and insurance carriers can request and obtain shareholder identity and trading information from firms on two levels:

  • At the summary-data level, where information is passed for super-omnibus accounts – those composed of multiple plans, trusts and/or investor omnibus accounts. This information may include account numbers and the dollar value of all shareholder buys and sells.
  • At the detail data level, where information is passed on a specific account or at the shareholder-trading level.
