TriOptima offers connectivity to CME's Swap Data Repository

TriOptima and CME Group to provide data verification and portfolio reconciliation of trade repository data for OTC derivatives portfolios.

TriOptima, provider of OTC derivative post trade services, will offer data verification and portfolio reconciliation of data in CME's Swap Data Repository with TriOptima's triResolve OTC derivatives reconciliation service as requested by their mutual clients.

Data connectivity between CME SDR and the triResolve platform will enable clients of both firms to verify and reconcile cleared and non-cleared credit, rates, foreign exchange and commodities transactions submitted to CME SDR; and leverage triResolve's resolution workflow process to identify and address any exceptions.

For buy side firms in the US who do not report directly to SDRs but rely on their dealer counterparties or swap execution facilities to report, comparing the data submitted to CME with their own submissions to triResolve can enable discrepancies to be identified and resolved, and regulators to have an accurate view of their positions.

"Connectivity with TriOptima enables our clients to comply with the CFTC mandates on swap data reporting, verification and portfolio reconciliation rules," said Jonathan Thursby, President of CME SDR. "Our mutual clients are now well positioned to manage regulatory obligations on their positions efficiently."

"This new service both contributes to data accuracy and creates opportunities for efficient workflow for industry participants, including performing regulatory reconciliations," said Raf Pritchard, CEO of TriOptima. "We believe that this kind of cooperation and interconnectivity is a logical step, leveraging existing, proven services to meet regulatory goals and thereby serving client needs in the new post trade landscape."
