DTCC Collaborates with REGnosys to Support ISDA Digital Regulatory Reporting

DTCC, the premier post-trade market infrastructure for the global financial services industry, today announced that it is working with REGnosys to support industry adoption of the ISDA Digital Regulatory Reporting (DRR) solution and aid compliance with forthcoming global derivatives trade reporting rewrites. The ISDA DRR establishes a golden-source interpretation of market practices and trade reporting logic, developed through industry consensus.

Through this collaboration, REGnosys’s Rosetta, the first ISDA DRR-native regulatory reporting platform, is connecting to the testing environment of DTCC’s Global Trade Repository (GTR) service. The connection enables the reliable testing of trade reporting submissions made using the ISDA DRR to confirm that submissions are accepted as valid by DTCC’s GTR in support of evolving trade reporting requirements. DTCC’s GTR users will benefit from the solution’s alignment with the industry consensus interpretation of the rules captured in the ISDA DRR.

ISDA’s DRR leverages the Common Domain Model (CDM) – an open-source data standard for financial products, trades and lifecycle events – to convert market practices and trade reporting rules into unambiguous, machine-executable code. It supports the transformation of trade data into the ISO 20022 format, as mandated by regulators, and ensures all validation rules are performed when reports get submitted to Trade Repositories like GTR.

“DTCC has been supportive of ISDA’s DRR since its inception, and we are pleased to collaborate with REGnosys to help facilitate the development of a complete, accurate, timely and cost-effective transaction reporting mechanism in accordance with trade reporting rewrite requirements leveraging the ISDA DRR,” stated Syed Ali, Managing Director, DTCC Repository and Derivatives Services. “As more and more firms consider how to simplify their architectures, this is the next step towards providing a streamlined, standard trade reporting generation application that evolves as rules evolve along with machine-readable regulatory requirements, from a single source.”

Commenting on this workflow, Leo Labeis, Chief Executive Officer at REGnosys, said: "REGnosys has put its Rosetta platform into action to serve the industry’s adoption of the ISDA DRR from the start, so we are proud to be joining forces with DTCC to further encourage this development. In a context of rapidly evolving global trade reporting requirements, this is the next step towards offering our clients certainty and effectiveness in hitting compliance deadlines using the industry’s best-in-class solution.”

“Using the ISDA DRR brings greater accuracy and efficiency to regulatory reporting and enables firms to comply with reporting rule changes in multiple jurisdictions at scale, so we’re delighted that DTCC and REGnosys are supporting industry adoption by enabling the validation of trade reporting submissions generated with the ISDA DRR by the Global Trade Repository,” said Scott O’Malia, ISDA’s Chief Executive.

DTCC provides trade repository services for derivatives and securities financing transactions through its GTR, the industry leader in trade reporting. As the only industry-owned and governed global provider of trade reporting services, GTR is uniquely positioned to help market participants address some of their most important operational and regulatory challenges in an ever-evolving environment.

REGnosys provides leading-edge regulatory reporting technology to the global financial industry. With thousands of users globally, its low-code collaboration platform, Rosetta, allows firms to crowd source the reporting logic and automate its deployment in their compliance systems. REGnosys is therefore uniquely placed to enable the development and adoption of the ISDA DRR solution.

The first phase of the collaboration between DTCC and REGnosys included testing and support for firms looking to leverage the ISDA DRR for trade reporting requirements related to regulatory amendments introduced by the Japanese Financial Services Agency (JFSA) and under the EU’s European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR). The next phase of the development efforts to support rule changes under UK EMIR and by the Australian Securities and Investments Commission (ASIC) and Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS) is currently underway in the ISDA DRR and is expected to launch in April this year.

Reporting Audit

First, map your data into CDM...

We have it covered it. All it takes is a +/- 2-day immersion workshop with your tech team to build your mappings.
As a by-product, you get a ready-to-use API to convert all your trade data

… And access your audit results on-line…

Once your trade data have been mapped, our reporting engine compares its output to your reports and analyses any discrepancy.
Analysis is developed within 6 weeks and results published into a web application.

… Through a powerful user interface

Forget static audit reports that end-up on a shelf.
Our reporting engine is available on-demand to reconcile your reporting process end-to-end and down to single trade flow, through a fully interactive interface.

CDM Integration

We do the data mappings for you…

Just extract transaction data from your booking, reporting or any other systems, we handle the rest.
We build mappings in immersion with your tech team, as a packaged +/- 2-day workshop that includes valuable CDM training – and is fun (yes, really)!

… And deliver you a packaged output…

Forget data mapping spreadsheets and forget hard-coded translation buried deep into your code base.
What you get is a transparent, maintainable CDM translation dictionary, automatically packaged into an API to translate your internal trade messages.

… Which you can start using right away

Start using the API for testing right away. For production deployment, we offer a range of hosting options that adapt to your technology stack.
The application grows with you. Just edit your dictionary to connect more and more systems to CDM.

Model-Driven Regulation

Bring-on the regulatory text…

Can be anything in your existing corpus, as long as it’s digestible and relatively self-contained.
The target is to deconstruct that text and reconstruct a model of the regulation in +/- 2 days.

… We’ll handle the rest…

Our team of regulatory and engineering experts works in immersion with you and guide the process from start to finish.
Our promise: some executable code running by the end of the workshop, delivered to you and ready for demonstration.

… And you’re ready to develop rules on your own

All it takes is a cross-functional team, ideally all-encompassing from policy to technology, who is open to a fresh (and fun!) approach.
The buck doesn’t stop there. Your team is now empowered to carry that project forward inside your organisation.

Data Modelling

Take an existing data pipeline of any form…

Just choose among your existing business processes to experiment a model-driven approach in +/- 2 days.​
We can start from any kind of artefact, from XML messages down to Excel or even PDF documents.

… To demonstrate the model-driven approach…

Our team of data engineering experts works in immersion with you and guide the process from start to finish.​
Our promise: some executable data pipeline running based on your model by the end of the workshop.

… Which you can deploy within your organisation

All it takes is a cross-functional team of developers and non-developers, who is open to a fresh (and fun!) approach.​
The buck doesn’t stop there. That team is now empowered to carry that project forward and build model-based pipelines for your organisation.
