DSB Technology Advisory Committee to Discuss Resiliency and Efficiency

The Derivatives Service Bureau’s (DSB) Technology Advisory Committee (TAC) set up earlier this month will hold its first meeting next Wednesday, June 27th 2018. Topics on the agenda range from infrastructure issues about the stability and resiliency of the DSB platform to usability issues related to download formats and increased efficiency. Many of the topics come from industry feedback on the DSB’s initial industry consultation on the 2019 fee model and user contract.

Marc Honegger, TAC sponsor and board member of the DSB, which is a subsidiary of the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA), says: “As an industry utility run on a cost-recovery basis, we look forward to receiving the TAC’s views on the appropriate level of investment in technology for the DSB to meet its responsibilities as a critical market infrastructure.”

Sassan Danesh, member of the DSB management team and the designated DSB officer of the TAC, adds: “In launching the DSB, we were focused on enabling derivatives markets to meet the MiFID II reporting requirements for OTC derivatives. We succeeded in that goal. Now we are addressing the refinements requested by DSB users. The TAC represents a substantial cross-section of stakeholders, but we also encourage other members and stakeholders to view the webinar to ensure that their interests are being addressed.”

In the interests of transparency, TAC meetings are public and observable through webinar access.

Additions and changes to the TAC membership since it was announced earlier this month include:

  • Rajiv Malik, vice president, JP Morgan
  • Henrik Martensson, markets CTO office, SEB
  • Elodie Cany, director, technology product development, Tradeweb
  • Rabobank has changed its representative to James Brown, delivery manager, IT systems
  • Thomson Reuters has changed its representative to David Bull, head of FI content management
