Derivatives Service Bureau Names Members of Expanded Product Committee

The Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB), which issues ISINs for OTC derivatives, has announced the members that will join an expanded product committee from January 8, 2019. It has also named five trade associations that will join as non-voting members, and transitioned the role of chair from the DSB to two external co-chairs from industry with a view to maintaining neutral and impartial discussions.

Following industry consultation and an invitation process for industry participation distributed to all DSB users and other interested parties (over 2,800 individuals), the new product committee membership has been chosen based on experience, asset class, workflow expertise and geographical representation. It expands representation across existing buy-side, sell-side and trading venues, increases voting members and includes two additional categories – custodians and data vendors.

Malavika Solanki, a member of the DSB management team, says: “With this new product committee membership and the broad-based expertise it brings, the DSB can move from developing ISIN products and defining product templates, to solving additional OTC derivative ISIN use cases and examining the introduction of hierarchies.”
