NEW YORK and LONDON, Dec. 12, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- truePTS, a New York-based processing ecosystem for the global $700 trillion derivatives market, established a strategic relationship with J.P. Morgan and Citi and to bring choice, innovation and automation to market participants who process derivatives.
The relationship helps truePTS address the regulatory and high cost pressures impacting industry participants by providing innovative technology solutions, such as a proprietary matching and validation engines as well as AI enhanced voice deal capture. These features allow auto-matching and direct clearing, automating the manual processing of derivatives, one of the largest source of errors, revisions, and operational risks (45% of trades were executed OFF-SEF in Q3 of 2017).
"We look forward to working with truePTS and the other market participants to develop new processing solutions for our clients," said Kieran Hanrahan, Global Head of Markets Middle Office at J.P. Morgan.
truePTS's 'no-touch' processing ecosystem delivers features at greater speed and cost effectiveness than traditional legacy systems, which according to the International Swaps and Derivatives Association "create a continuous and duplicative activity that absorbs a significant amount of operational capacity within firms …as a result, downstream processes such as collateral management, reporting, and settlement continue to experience processing breaks and mismatches of trade information."
J.P. Morgan and Citi, are the first two companies to join truePTS, with other industry participants expected to join in the coming months.
"We will be the catalyst that provides transparency, increases efficiency and lowers costs for our clients by leveraging the most progressive technology," said Zohar Hod, CEO of truePTS. "We're able to leverage the industry leaders' strategic input, particularly as we address the challenge of scale with other clients to become the new benchmark in the post-trade processing industry."
truePTS is a post-trade processing and product-agnostic venue that delivers operational and processing benefits for global derivatives to dealers, buy-side firms, inter-dealer brokers, and clearing houses. truePTS offers efficient processing and allocation of very high volumes of trades with a 'no touch' process that eliminates the need for trade affirmation while providing an instant clearing status. truePTS has the ability to retrieve and port positions between the major clearing houses and FCMs. It currently provides full straight-through processing with allocations support in 21 currencies and direct access to LCH and CME.
