REGnosys and ISDA Provide Open Access to CDM 2.0 for Deployment

London, 22 March 2019. REGnosys and the International Swaps and Derivatives Association, Inc. (ISDA) have extended their partnership by publishing the full version of the ISDA Common Domain Model (CDM) for interest rate and credit derivatives and opening access through the Rosetta Portal to all market participants, including non-ISDA members.

The ISDA CDM is the first industry solution to tackle the lack of standard conventions in how derivatives trade events and processes are represented. Developed in response to regulatory changes, high costs associated with current manual processes and a demand for greater automation across the industry, the ISDA CDM for the first time creates a common blueprint for events that occur throughout the derivatives lifecycle, paving the way for greater automation and efficiency at scale.

The ISDA CDM has been implemented using Rosetta, a language and tooling developed by REGnosys using open source technology, with the design of making it openly available to all industry participants.

“The CDM is in effect the first industry-wide, enterprise-grade use for Rosetta as a technology platform. The Rosetta Portal is an open web resource featuring many tools such as visualisation and navigation that are designed to facilitate usage and adoption of the CDM,” said Leo Labeis, co-founder and CEO at REGnosys.

By opening access to the entire market, REGnosys and ISDA expect to develop a broader user community for the CDM and further develop opportunities for deployment. Current projects involving the ISDA CDM include rates clearing and collateral management solutions.

“There is a strong case for extending the CDM to cover processes beyond derivatives, for instance elements of collateral management that you can reuse in other asset classes such as securities financing. Opening up the CDM and the Rosetta Portal is an important step to foster further industry collaboration”, added Mr. Labeis.

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.
