DTCC Files SDR Applications with CFTC

Subscribe to our newsletter

The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) announced that it had filed a registration application with the U.S. Commodity Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) to operate a swaps data repository (SDR), DTCC Data Repository (U.S.), across multiple OTC derivatives asset classes.

“DTCC is committed to working with financial authorities and the industry to promote a transparent and sound OTC derivatives market,” said Stewart Macbeth, president and chief executive officer, DTCC Deriv/SERV. “By filing these applications, our goal is to facilitate swaps transaction record keeping and regulatory reporting by US market participants as required by CFTC regulations under the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform Act.”

DTCC Data Repository (U.S.) will provide trade repository and reporting services for over-the-counter credit, interest rates, equities and foreign exchange derivatives.

SDR For Commodities

A separate application is also being filed to operate a commodities SDR through Global Trade Repository for Commodities (U.S.), a strategic alliance between DTCC’s Deriv/SERV subsidiary and Netherland-based EFETnet.

This joint collaboration, which was previously announced in June, integrates EFETnet¹s vast experience in the commodities arena and its deep network of contacts in the user community with DTCC’s proven track record in building global trade repositories. It will bring together EFETnet’s secure data communications and post trade processing capabilities with DTCC’s repository and regulatory reporting infrastructure. The combination will provide the commodities industry with an at-cost, industry owned and governed cooperative to streamline reporting to multiple regimes.

DTCC already operates global trade repositories for over-the-counter (OTC) credit and equity derivatives. The company was selected by the industry in competitive bidding processes organized by the International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) to operate global trade repositories for OTC interest rates and, in partnership with EFETnet, commodities repositories.

It was also selected, in collaboration with SWIFT, to build and operate a global FX repository by a group of global foreign exchange organizations including the Global FX Division of SIFMA, the Association for Financial Markets in Europe (AFME) and the Asia Securities Industry & Financial Markets Association (ASIFMA).

Today, DTCC holds records on more than 98% of the global credit derivative market. DTCC also launched in February 2011 a portal which provides regulators and financial supervisors around the world with direct, on-line access to detailed data and reports on those derivatives in near real-time for the entities they regulate and supervise. DTCC is an at-cost cooperative owned and governed by the financial industry.

DTCC also publishes, free of charge, comprehensive aggregate data for the top 1,000 corporate and sovereign credit derivatives single reference entities and credit derivatives indices on www.dtcc.com every Tuesday after 5:00 p.m. ET (2200 GMT).
