US-Dodd-Frank - CFTC / SEC Reporting (SDR)

The deltaconX regulatory reporting solution is built to simplify the burden of compliance across a number of regulations so that our clients don’t have to lose time and resources to looking after compliance themselves.

Our platform enables compliance Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank” or the “Act”) in a way that helps streamline day-to-day reporting to ensure CTFC compliance.

In July 2010, the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act (“Dodd-Frank” or the “Act”) was signed into U.S. federal law. The Act made changes to the financial regulatory environment in the United States as a way of promoting financial stability by, among other things, improving accountability and transparency in the financial system.

Within the Act, Title VII addressed concerns regarding the regulation of the over the counter (OTC) swaps markets, and in particular, required certain OTC derivatives and FX instruments to be traded on a regulated Swap Execution Facility (SEF).

What is the reporting obligation?

All Swaps, cleared or uncleared, must be reported to a Swap Data Repository (SDR) and the SDR is responsible to collect and maintain data related to swap transactions, keeping such data electronically available for regulators or the public.

The deltaconX platform supports clients to meet their obligations to provide data to the SDR under Part 45 record-keeping, transaction reporting, allowing regulators to monitor for systemic risk. This is a ‘Single Sided’ regime unlike EMEA Transaction Reporting Obligations.

Firms trading OTC derivatives in the US must report details to a registered Swap Data Repository (SDR).

The CFTC has also started the implementation of a substantial revision of the reporting rules, known as the CFTC Rewrite, and reporting under the new rules, the introduction of which is split into 2 phases.
