London, 9 September 2019 – Delta Capita, the international business and technology consulting and managed services firm, has today announced it is collaborating with The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC), the premier post-trade market infrastructure for the global financial services industry, to help market participants meet their Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) trade reporting obligations.

Delta Capita’s banking consortium is creating a standardised SFTR industry test pack. Under this new collaboration, Delta Capita will make the test pack available to DTCC to test its own SFTR matching and reporting service prior to launch. DTCC opened user-acceptance testing with industry vendors on August 30, 2019.

Clients of DTCC’s Global Trade Repository (GTR) service for SFTR – who independently license the consortium’s test pack – will benefit from knowing the service has already been tested, reducing their own testing effort and costs and ensuring readiness for trade reporting. Furthermore, DTCC will make its data transformation services available to Delta Capita’s banking consortium to assist with the creation of trade repository (TR)-ready ISO 20022 SFTR reports.
