Catena Technologies announced this Thursday that Singapore-based investment management firm, Southern Ridges Capital, has selected its TRACE trade reporting platform to report over-the-counter (OTC) derivatives trades to the Monetary Authority of Singapore (MAS).
The TRACE Reporting solution allows financial firms to report over-the-counter (OTC) derivative trades to regulators through trade repositories around the world. The platform handles trade reporting requirements related to cross-asset coverage, valuation, collateral reporting, reconciliation, and other data that trade-repositories receive from financial institutions – and which are relayed to regulators under relevant compliance rules.
Furthermore, the platform manages end-to-end reporting and reconciliation workflow. It does this by capturing, normalizing, calculating, transforming, and submitting the required information to trade repositories automatically.
