Product Summary

Ongoing OTC market structure changes are altering the way the industry operates, creating an intricate web of connectivity, data management and trade processing requirements. Rapid growth in new trading, reporting and clearing venues globally, along with the associated connectivity and processing demands, are increasing pressure on the middle and back office infrastructures of buyside and sellside participants. For all parties, the costs associated with compliance with new and evolving OTC regulations while maintaining operational flexibility are higher than ever.

MarkitSERV helps industry participants meet these challenges, while minimising the cost and complexity of running their business. By integrating processes along the OTC transaction lifecycle from post trade notification and confirmation, to allocations and regulatory clearing and reporting, we provide end-to-end, multi-asset trade processing solutions that support all OTC market participants.

MarkitSERV supports a broad range of asset classes and products, working continuously with the global financial industry to ensure swift and efficient coverage of new products.
