The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), the premier post-trade market infrastructure for the global financial services industry, today announced new partnerships with Catena Technologies, Compliance Solutions Strategies (CSS) and Finastra, to further support our mutual clients who will leverage DTCC’s Global Trade Repository (GTR) service in support of forthcoming Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) obligations, which are anticipated to take effect in April 2020.
“DTCC works to advance industry-leading solutions that help secure and shape the future growth and development of the global financial marketplace,” said Marisol Collazo, Managing Director, Business Development and Head of Strategic Partnerships at DTCC. “Our Partner Program supports this mission by actively promoting collaboration with global and regional financial technology providers to help mutual clients to mitigate risk, achieve market efficiencies and reduce costs - and SFTR is, rightly so, front of mind for many right now.”
In 2018, DTCC’s Repository and Derivatives Services (RDS) division established GTR SFTR partnerships with EquiLend, Trax, IHS Markit and Pirum as well as Broadridge, FIS Global, Murex, RegTek.Solutions and SimCorp.
“DTCC strives to transform the post-trade ecosystem through strategic partnerships that drive client value while accelerating the adoption of new initiatives and best-practices across the financial services industry”, said Val Wotton, Managing Director, Product Development & Strategy of Repository and Derivatives Services at DTCC. “We are delighted to be working with Catena, CSS and Finastra, to further enhance clients' access to our multi-award-winning Global Trade Repository (GTR) service and look forward to fully supporting our mutual SFTR clients.”
