    Fund Recs automates connectivity with DTCC’s GTR service to streamline EMIR and SFTR trade reporting reconciliations

    Dublin, 14th September 2021 - Fund Recs today announced that they have entered into an agreement with The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation’s trade repository DTCC Data Repository (Ireland) Plc (DDRIE), part of DTCC’s Global Trade Repository (GTR) service, to partner on delivering new automated reconciliation capabilities in support of EMIR and SFTR trade reporting requirements.

    With this agreement, Fund Recs’ Velocity service, a no code, cloud-based platform that automates reconciliation for the investment management industry, will connect to DTCC’s GTR service to retrieve and analyse trade data for accuracy and completion, simplifying and streamlining the reconciliation process.

    Under EMIR and SFTR, fund managers are required to submit their transaction data to a trade repository in a timely manner. Oversight of this transaction data is critical to ensure data quality and adherence with the mandates. By leveraging Fund Recs’ Velocity service and DTCC’s GTR, fund managers can compare and match trade records submitted to the GTR service with their internal accounting book of record, ensuring that trades have been submitted and are complete as defined by ESMA trade reporting requirements. The new connectivity allows Velocity to automatically retrieve clients' trade data from GTR, facilitating timely, efficient, and straight through data quality control, eliminating manual processes.

    DTCC Data Repository (Ireland) Plc (DDRIE) is one of the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) approved trade repositories under EMIR and SFTR.

    Fund Recs CEO, Alan Meaney, said: “Fund Managers are under increasing pressure to ensure EMIR and SFTR reporting is timely, accurate and complete. Our reconciliation modules provide a streamlined, fully auditable, and automated solution for managers, which helps to ensure their governance needs are met. We are delighted to be collaborating with DTCC as entering into this agreement enables us to increase the level of automation we provide to our clients.”

    DTCC Managing Director and Head of Repository & Derivatives Services, Chris Childs, said, “DTCC is committed to helping establish a robust, comprehensive reporting infrastructure for the global derivatives market. We welcome the opportunity to work with innovative third-party service providers like Fund Recs to build connectivity to our repository services and help our mutual clients meet regulatory mandates in Europe and beyond.”

    Fund Recs Velocity now being used for EMIR Reconciliations

    Dublin, 28th January 2021 - Fund Recs today announced that their Velocity platform is being used to automate the reconciliation between Investment Managers accounting records and their Trade Repositories to support their EMIR regulatory requirements.

    Velocity is a set of software modules that helps investment managers, global fund administrators and auditors to achieve straight through reconciliations.

    Completing timely and accurate trade and position reconciliations is imperative to firms so that all Central Bank & ESMA requirements are met for EMIR purposes. Management firms with sub advisors or delegated models have the ultimate responsibility that all trades are being reported to the repository and that the information being reported is accurate. Although this can be outsourced the responsibility cannot be outsourced. The Central Bank have confirmed that delegated reporting is one of 4 areas they will be focusing on. They have stated that if reporting obligations are delegated firms should still reconcile all data to ensure all relevant trades have been reported, remedial action is taken to resolve any issues and that they regularly review trade repository rejection reports.

    Fund Recs CEO, Alan Meaney, said: “Effectively overseeing EMIR trade reporting continues to be a key focus for many firms. Regulatory data is growing exponentially and we’re investing heavily to ensure operational teams have the right tools to rise to the challenge.”

    Mercer are one of the firms that have gone live with the Velocity platform in its Dublin Office which has increased efficiency, reduced risk, and helped meet the regulatory requirements.

    Speaking about the new partnership, Des Pierce a Partner in Mercer’s Investment Solutions business said: “When seeking to enhance our EMIR oversight process, we were looking for a solution that could absorb and reconcile key EMIR data from various sources and for a system that would have the versatility and potential to cope with reconciliations for additional regulations & functions. Fund Recs met these requirements and we were very impressed with their approach to solving the problem which allows us to maintain the highest oversight standards.”
