The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) and TriOptima announce today that data connectivity between the DTCC Data Repository (U.S.) LLC (DDR) and TriOptima’s triResolve portfolio reconciliation service first announced in June is now live and operational.
The service, which enables the reconciliation of OTC derivatives trades reported to DTCC’s US trade repository, is a significant step aimed at improving portfolio risk management for dealers and end users.
It will help ensure compliance with the CFTC mandated reconciliation deadline of August 23. DTCC and TriOptima anticipate that their collaboration can also be extended to market participants in Europe where portfolio reconciliation and trade reporting rules will come into effect imminently. The European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) portfolio reconciliation rules will come into effect on September 15, 2013 and EMIR mandatory trade reporting will begin on January 1, 2014.
“Our cooperation with TriOptima enables DTCC to offer its participants the ability to meet their portfolio reconciliation requirement leveraging the same submission used to meet their trade reporting obligation,” said Marisol Collazo, US CEO for DTCC Data Repository. “Clients are now well positioned to manage and reconcile their derivatives positions efficiently. We are committed to working with complementary third party service providers like TriOptima so our mutual clients have greater and more efficient access to our services which help them effectively meet their regulatory mandates globally.”
“We are delighted now to have live repository data directly feeding our reconciliation service.” said Raf Pritchard, CEO of triResolve. “This both contributes to data accuracy and creates opportunities for efficient workflow for industry participants, including performing regulatory reconciliations. We believe that this kind of cooperation and interconnectivity is the way forward for post trade services.”
