ICMA’s ERCC Ops FinTech Working Group (WG) initially published a directory of over 80 technology solutions available for repo and cash bond operations in November 2017. The directory is being kept up-to-date on a regular basis and the latest version released in October 2021 has now grown to include over 200 solutions. The directory is divided into the following 10 categories:
- Collateral management / Lifecycle
- Collateral management / Margin
- Corporate actions
- Exposure agreement
- Intraday liquidity: monitoring and reporting
- KYC onboarding
- Matching, confirmation & allocation
- Static Data & Standard Settlement Instructions (SSI)
- Workflow & communication
The ICMA Operations FinTech Directory compares the capabilities of different providers and seeks to create greater transparency in a very dynamic and fluid market. It focuses on providers and solutions that are used by WG members, and is intended to be a living document. All responses have been put together in close collaboration with the vendors and validated by them. The directory does not constitute an exhaustive list of providers in the market. It will be updated on a regular basis to include other existing or new solutions.
Relevant providers that are not yet covered by the directory and wish to join are very welcome to do so. Please contact Gabriel Callsen or Rowan Varrall (see below) for further details.
