The deltaconX regulatory reporting solution enables MAS reporting – Monetary Authority of Singapore Transaction Reporting in a way that helps streamline day-to-day reporting to make sure that OTC SDCs are correctly included in your MAS trade reports.

Interest Rates and Credit Derivatives were the first asset classes reportable under MAS Reporting. In October 2021 FX, Commodity and Equity OTC derivative contracts were added, for local financial institutions and insurers as well as subsidiaries of international companies in Singapore.
