DTCC Acquires Sapient’s Platform for Compliance Management Reporting

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), which provides market infrastructure for the global financial services industry, has acquired Publicis Sapient’s Compliance Management Reporting System (CMRS). DTCC plans to integrate the system with its own Report Hub service to create a comprehensive pre- and post trade reporting solution.

Firms using the newly expanded DTCC Report Hub offering will have the ability to manage derivatives, MiFID II, and Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR) pre and post trade reporting requirements via a unified, single-vendor platform.

“As national and global regulatory demands continue to increase, firms need a solution to help them simplify the complexities of their pre and post trade reporting processes,” said Chris Childs, Managing Director, Head of Repository & Derivatives Services, DTCC. “CMRS is an established platform that, when integrated with the DTCC Report Hub service, will provide the industry with a proven pre and post reporting service that offers unrivalled asset and jurisdictional coverage.”

Under the terms of the acquisition, Publicis Sapient will serve as a strategic partner to DTCC by continuing to support, maintain and develop enhancements to the technology platform. “The combined trade reporting and consulting experience that DTCC and Publicis Sapient contribute to the existing technology platform will create a single, highly efficient, evolving, comprehensive reporting solution that will help clients manage the complexities of meeting multiple regulatory mandates across jurisdictions,” said Randall Orbon, Head of Strategy at Publicis Sapient. “Publicis Sapient engineered CMRS to act as an accelerator, and we’ve seen the platform develop a proven record of successfully supporting adherence to ever-evolving global reporting regulations.”
