Validate.Trade is the world’s only independent, portable, comprehensive validation engine for trade and transaction reporting. Implementing a broad range of validations including regulatory specific validations, repository acceptance criteria, messaging standards, enhanced validations and best practices, or allowing firms to write and customise their own proprietary rules. Validate.Trade is the bedrock of several of primary reporting solutions we offer – Reporting Quality Assurance, Reporting Quality Gatekeeper as well as Complete Reporting Transparency and Regulatory Quality Heatmaps. Validate.Trade provides value to both the pre-production / change-the-bank environment, supporting analysis, development and testing of regulatory reporting solutions, as well as the post-production / run-the-bank needs of continuous control, oversight and reporting.
Reportable.Trade, like all our solutions, is built and maintained around our actionable regulatory intelligence, in collaboration with our community of clients and partners. It is the only independent solution for trade reporting completeness, providing confidence and control to direct and delegating reporting parties, while also identifying over- and under- reporting and duplicates. Our independent approach benefits further from our integration with third-party reference data solutions that augments or enriches the eligibility process – SmartStream’s Reference Data Utility (RDU) is a key data partner for MiFIR reporting data. Reportable.Trade is the core product behind our Completeness Assurance solutions, including Delegated Reporting Oversight. It covers all primary G20 OTC reporting jurisdictions – Dodd-Frank, EMIR, HKMA, Canada, ASIC, MAS, JFSA and Israel, as well as transaction reporting under MiFIR/MiFID II and SFTR (TBA). Reportable.Trade also offers Reportable Payload generation and integration with Reconcile.Trade to support the complete reconciliation of all data elements reported.
Reconcile.Trade combines the actionable regulatory intelligence of RegTek.Solutions with the market-leading functionality and experience of SmartStream TLM Premium®.

Reconcile.Trade delivers our Accuracy Solutions – Reporting Accuracy Assurance and the accuracy component of Delegated Reporting Oversight. Fed by Reportable.Trade, Reconcile.Trade also provides insight and exception management support for Completeness breaks. Exception management is a key feature of the Reconcile.Trade product, leveraging the rich exception management workflow and reporting of TLM Premium®, Reconcile.Trade gives firms the operational capability to create, manage and resolve reporting exceptions, allocate exceptions to internal or external stakeholders and provides a fully audited chronology of the exception management process for auditors and regulators.

Prior to creating RegTek.Solutions, the CME engaged our team within Risk Focus to help with the processing of FpML based trade reporting messages. The project was an ideal place to use our proprietary “FpML Flattener”, an intelligent transformation engine that creates usable data from FpML reports. The “Flattener” allowed the CME to easily move between FpML and their own reporting formats. Jonathan Thursby, President, Global Repository Services at CME Group said “They are experts in the trade reporting domain and delivered what we needed, fast and with minimal oversight”.
The Regulatory Reporting Hub of Deutsche Börse Group has launched a partnership with RegTek.Solutions in which key system components, including VALIDATETrade were included in the Regulatory Reporting Hubs’ OTC Trade Reporting solution. Georg Gross, Head of Regulatory Services at Deutsche Börse, said “In the dynamic environment with frequent updates of regulatory details, the approach using a rules engine has already proven to be very useful. OTC trade reporting is one of the backbones of MiFID II, which is going to be effective as of January 2018. Deutsche Börse’s MiFID II OTC trade reporting service will provide clients with an efficient and simple-to-use way of meeting their OTC transparency requirements in accordance with the new regulation”.
RegTek.Solutions has enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with the DTCC. Our solutions are used by many of the largest Global Trade Repository [GTR] reporting firms and we cover 100% of the global regulatory jurisdictions supported by the GTR. That said, we were very excited when the DTCC chose to use our VALIDATETrade software to help them test and prepare for their EMIR reporting upgrades. Chris Childs, CEO of DTCC’s Global GTR business said “DTCC believes that the use of this tool internally will enhance quality assurance and pre-UAT testing within the GTR service”.
UBS was the 6th G15 bank to sign up to our VALIDATETrade platform. UBS is initially using VALIDATETrade to enhance and streamline the testing of its proprietary reporting solutions. With a full enterprise license for G20 Reporting to the DTCC Global Trade Repository [GTR], UBS has the opportunity to expand its usage to include proactive control and oversight of the global reporting platform through comprehensive data quality surveillance of daily reporting submissions. Brian Lynch, CEO of RegTek.Solutions, said “Having enjoyed a long and happy career at UBS I was particularly excited to get them on-board”.
