DSB Adds Option to Use Alternative Underlier Ids to Search for or Create UPIs

Subscribe to our newsletter

The Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB) continues to prepare for the production launch of the Unique Product Identifier (UPI) on 16 October 2023 with an option for users of the UPI User Acceptance Test (UAT) environment to search for and create UPIs using a range of alternative underlier IDs.

The alternative underlier ID feature allows firms to use data available in their existing workflow to obtain a UPI using different identifiers of the same underlier. This has been made possible by the implementation of the DSB’s reference data solution that is provided in partnership with The Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) Service Bureau (ASB) and Intercontinental Exchange (ICE) as reference data providers, and SmartStream as a reference data aggregator.

High-quality cross-referenced symbology data provided by ICE and SmartStream also helps enable the DSB to meet data quality objectives to ensure integrity, completeness, and consistency of UPI codes and associated reference data.

“The introduction of the alternative underlier ID feature will provide fee-paying UPI users with the option to use the underlier ID of their choice, streamlining business processes and delivering efficiencies,” says Emma Kalliomaki, managing director at ANNA and the DSB. “This feature wouldn’t be possible without our chosen reference data partners whose data will also assist the DSB to monitor and assess UPI data quality that is fundamental to the success of the UPI system.”

Subscribers to the UPI UAT service can request permission to use one or more alternative underlier IDs via the DSB’s Client Onboarding and Support Platform (COSP).
