The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation, the post-trade market infrastructure for the financial services industry, has announced that its Global Trade Repository (GTR), through its locally registered trade repository, has added trade repository services for Newfoundland and Labrador.
With this addition, GTR now supports all Canadian provinces and territories, with existing support for Alberta, British Columbia, Manitoba, New Brunswick, Nova Scotia, Ontario, Quebec, Saskatchewan, Nunavut, Northwest Territories, Prince Edward Island and Yukon.
In an effort to achieve improved risk analysis, all Canadian provinces and territories have adopted harmonized derivatives reporting regulations, as applicable, rules 91-507 and MI 96-101. These rules require reporting for over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives transactions, including rate, credit, equity, FX and commodity derivatives. GTR is anticipated to begin support for public price dissemination in January 2017, across all Canadian provinces and territories.
