In addition to ASIC, Catena TRACE Reporting is supported across multiple jurisdictions in the region including MAS in Singapore, HKMA in Hong Kong, JFSA in Japan, as well as EMIR in Europe.
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.
“Catena has helped various financial institutions in Australia, including banks, superannuation funds, investment managers and FX brokers, to successfully report their OTC derivatives information to ASIC,” added Hayden King, Chief Operating Officer (COO) of BT Investment Management, commenting in the official press release.
Mr. King concluded: “We selected Catena’s trade reporting solution because it covers our functional requirements for trade reporting across multiple asset classes. Also, Catena’s intensive focus on market and regulatory knowledge enables them to adapt to new requirements quickly, which is important to us. And Catena’s hosted platform provides BTIM a secure managed service that will help us reduce the infrastructure and operational cost associated with trade reporting.”
