DTCC’s GTR covers ground in Canada
Post-trade infrastructure DTCC has extended its Global Trade Repository (GTR) service to the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, meaning it now covers all provinces and territories in the country.

The service supports derivatives and trade reporting under rules 91-507 and MI 96-101, which require reporting for over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives transactions including rate, credit, equity, foreign exchange and commodity derivatives.

GTR is also expected to start providing support for public price dissemination across Canada in January 2017.

Marisol Collazo, CEO of GTR in the Americas at DTCC, said: “As the only global trade repository offering reporting services across all five asset classes, we continue to work with regulators, service providers and end users to facilitate reporting in Canada and other major jurisdictions.”

“Our commitment is to continue to support our clients by offering a flexible platform which simplifies their reporting processes by enabling them to report all their trades once.”

According to DTCC, 150 firms in Canada currently use the GTR service, managing a total of about 620 accounts.
