Futureproofing Derivatives Post-trade: Building Operational Resilience Across the Market

Acuiti today publishes Futureproofing Derivatives Post-trade: Building Operational Resilience Across the Market, in association with OSTTRA.

This report deep-dives into how firms are approaching investment in listed derivatives post-trade, what progress has been made since 2020 and the challenges associated with the growth of exchange-traded derivatives markets. It is based on surveys or interviews of senior market participants from 57 of the major sell-side firms and asset managers across the globe.

The key findings of the report are:
• Significant progress has been made to increase operational resilience in listed derivatives markets since March 2020, however 61% of respondents believe that major risks are still present
• Allocations and give-ups remain the main areas of risk in the system
• Industry initiatives to improve the timeliness of listed derivatives trades are a key element of increased resilience but data standardisation is also required
• The market overwhelmingly supports the creation of a mandatory, expanded data set for listed derivatives trades to achieve harmonisation across the market
• Investment in collateral optimisation is increasing as firms seek to reduce complex, manual processes and improve operational efficiency in the wake of higher rates and margins
