Citi today announced that its Global Transaction Services business has launched a comprehensive OTC Derivatives Service that consolidates and simplifies the entire post-trade execution process. The offering provides clients with access to a full range of middle and back office services on a single platform, including confirmation, settlement, valuation services, collateral management, margin management, and access to Citi’s global clearing network.

New regulations and oversight are transforming the OTC derivatives market, adding levels of operational complexity and reporting requirements across the contract lifecycle. The proposed offering addresses the need for a comprehensive OTC derivatives solution clients can use to navigate a rapidly changing regulatory and operational environment, featuring connectivity to all major execution venues and clearing houses, daily valuation services, margin and collateral optimisation, and extensive reporting. A flexible, web-based interface enables full intra-day visibility into key contract lifecycle events.
