ISDA Announces Interest Rate Derivatives Trade Repository Selection

The International Swaps and Derivatives Association (ISDA) announced today that the ISDA Rates Steering Committee (RSC) has chosen Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) to partner with the RSC on the next stage of development of the Interest Rate Trade Repository.

This selection is the result of a public Request for Proposals (RFP), which was issued March 14, 2011. The ISDA RSC, which consists of senior business representatives in the interest rate market from both buy and sell side firms, issued the RFP and selected the provider.

Trade repositories improve transparency by providing global regulators with significant visibility into risk exposures by firm and by counterparty. ISDA has helped establish trade repositories for other asset classes, including OTC credit default and equity derivatives, and one is currently underway for commodity derivatives.
