Summary of CDM Repo Workshops by Gabriel Callsen, published in the ICMA Quarterly Report Q2-2020.

16 March 2020
3rd ICMA/ISDA CDM Repo Workshop. Modelling and running a live demo of fundamental features of a repo transaction ie the execution comprising transfer of collateral and cash of both legs in the CDM. See supporting materials.

14 February 2020
2nd ICMA/ISDA CDM Repo Workshop. Advanced modelling  and live implementation of open repo and lifecycle components in the CDM. See supporting materials.

27 January 2020
ICMA/ISDA CDM Repo Workshop. The workshop focused on modelling open repos, and, as an initial use case for corporate actions, collateral coupon payments. The aim was to demonstrate the benefits of a consistent data model in machine-readable format, using a hands-on format which showed  a real-time implementation. The workshop is the first of a series. See presentation of the first part of the workshop.

16-17 October 2019
ICMA partnered with ISDA, Regnosys and others to support the Barclays DerivHack 2019. The objective was to build on the successful ‘CDM hackathon’ from 2018 to extend the simulation to post-trade processing of securities. There were seven use cases that aimed to model the typical steps of a front-to-back trade flow covering trade execution, allocation, affirmation, confirmation, settlement, position reports, and collateral events. See report published by EY.
