Derivatives Service Bureau Names Members of Technology Advisory Committee

Blog entry
The Association of National Numbering Agencies’ (ANNA) Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB) has named members of its newly formed Technology Advisory Committee (TAC). The TAC has been set up to provide guidance and recommendations to the DSB Board on technology implementation and investment to support the DSB role as a critical market infrastructure providing International Securities Identification Numbers (ISIN), Classification of Financial Instruments (CFI) and Financial Instrument Short Name (FISN) codes for OTC derivatives initially under MiFID II.

Following a high level of industry interest in participating in the TAC, the DSB amended the TAC charter to increase the maximum number of participants from 20 to 40. The committee is comprised of representatives of banks that are systematic internalisers in the OTC derivatives markets, derivatives trading venues, related businesses, trade associations, independent experts and regulators.
 
Emma Kalliomaki, managing director at the DSB, says: “The DSB was set up in a period of significant change in the derivatives industry, particularly in the realm of regulation and reporting. The TAC will be crucial to our readiness to meet the evolving challenges of instrument identification.”
David Broadway of the Investment Association has been named chair of the TAC. He says: “The DSB executes a critical market function in numbering complex financial instruments under the ISO 6166 standard. Given the relative youth of the DSB, the diversity of the TAC membership will be beneficial to ensure its technology infrastructure meets the requirements of industry and regulators.”
