Etrading Software fulfilled the PMO function for the development of a global identifier for derivatives.

Triggered by regulatory rules from the SEC & ESMA, Etrading Software launched a project under ISDA’s guidance to address a long outstanding issue surrounding global product identifiers for derivatives.

Building a sponsorship group including banks, asset manager, depositories and data vendors, Etrading Software led the working groups who focused on defining the granularity and relevant workflows for the identifiers in different instrument classes.  In addition, we built a consensus on regulatory interpretation and requirements that enabled the project to begin its engagement with the wider marketplace, including regulators and existing numbering agencies.

Delivered to date:

  • Documented interpretation of the regulatory requirements
  • Published challenges with the current recommended approach by regulators
  • Published principles for any global product identifier for derivatives
