Confirmation - MarkitSERV provides seamless links between counterparties for efficient trade matching, affirmation and execution of trade date legal confirmations. Buy-side customers access MarkitSERV's confirmation services through a single portal, affirming trades through simple point-and-click screens.
Clearing - MarkitSERV connects to all major clearinghouses for voluntary and mandatory clearing of OTC trades, across all asset classes, including FX NDF clearing (dealer and client) to new FX clearinghouses. By submitting trades for clearing through MarkitSERV, participants greatly reduce the cost and effort required to build and maintain direct connections to multiple clearinghouses. MarkitSERV maintains bespoke interfaces to each clearinghouse by providing customers with efficient access to multiple clearinghouses without the burden of supporting multiple differing and evolving connections.
Reporting – A single connection to MarkitSERV helps satisfy new and evolving regulatory reporting obligations for cleared and non-cleared OTC transactions, including EMIR and Dodd-Frank reporting requirements. In addition, you do not need to build, deploy and maintain connectivity to multiple trade repositories.
Trades processed for confirmation and clearing can be routed seamlessly to designated trade repositories to fulfill new regulatory reporting obligations. Regulatory reporting is also supported for transactions where only one party is connected to MarkitSERV.
Straight-Through Processing (STP) – MarkitSERV connects trading counterparties with global FX execution venues and other destinations, providing a single channel for trade notifications across multiple venues. It moves FX trade notifications seamlessly to internal and third-party middle and back office applications for post-trade processes, offering real-time STP for the efficient management of post-trade workflow.
MarkitSERV can deliver the details of executed trades in customer-specified formats, providing support for industry standards, including FIX and FpML.
