FIX Trading Community Calls for Industry Participants to Join New Working Groups

FIX is inviting industry participants to join a number of new working groups that will operate under the FIX Trading Community umbrella.

The working groups include a repo working group covering how to automate the lifecycle of repos using FIX and an RMB products group to propose enhancements to the FIX Protocol for RMB product related workflows. A securities lending group will develop messages to support automated processing of securities lending and an SFTR group will help firms meet the challenges of Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR), including reporting obligations that are expected to come into play in late 2019 or early 2020.

If you would like to join any of these working groups contact the FIX Program Office – fix@fixtrading.org.
