Regulatory data quality for CFTC Reporting

Be confident in the accuracy of your data and of your ability to meet changing CFTC requirements.

CFTC rules go prescriptive in push for data quality

The first phase of the CFTC Rewrite goes live on December 5. Changes include field amendments, stricter reconciliation requirements and tighter error notification windows.

Firms have to manage a lot of change – with more to come after the go-live date.

Phase I of the CFTC Rewrite is now live. Is your reporting compliant?

An agile new approach to tackling the challenges of the CFTC Rewrite

The CFTC Rewrite aims for better data quality and more transparent markets. Delivering this, however, puts enormous pressure on firms. But many of the problems are caused by outdated technology.

Financial firms have historically reacted to regulatory change on a case-by-case basis. This has created a complex web of point solutions and one-time fixes.

There’s a wave of regulatory change that goes far beyond the CFTC Rewrite. It’s time to embrace the latest tools and tackle data quality issues holistically, across your organisation. This will enable you to meet any changes head on, building an operating model that keeps you ready for whatever comes next.


How can I quickly adapt my operational processes to stay compliant?


The CFTC has announced a lot of changes already, but there will be more to come. Legacy tech stacks adapt at glacial pace and require heavy IT involvement.


Give business users power over data controls. Our proprietary no-code Natural Rule Language (NRL) enables non-technical staff to remap existing processes, or build new reconciliations, quickly and easily.


New field requirements add even more data sources and formats


CFTC reporting requires you to gather data from tens of systems and these records all need transforming and reconciling to ensure their accuracy.


Ditch ETL with our schema-free and data-agnostic platform. It’s able to ingest files in multiple formats from multiple systems. Easily gather, standardise and reconcile data before automatically feeding it to downstream reporting tools.


Reporting timeframes are tighter and errors need correcting fast


Most firms now have to report trades on T+1 and everyone has just seven days to notify the DTCC of errors. But legacy systems reconcile slowly and error identification is a tedious process.


Unlock lightning-fast reconciliation and laser-focused exception management. Our data quality solution for the CFTC Rewrite can easily handle wide, complex data. The cloud-powered matching algorithm cuts runtimes and exceptions are pinpointed for rapid identification, assignment and resolution.


More change to come with new data elements in Phase II


Phase I of the Rewrite introduces the Unique Transaction Identifier (UTI), with the Unique Product Identifier (UPI) and a move to XML messaging standards following in Phase II. Your systems and reconciliations will need reconfiguring to handle these new data types.


Say goodbye to multi-month change projects, IT cross-charges and business requirements documents. Duco’s self-service data quality solution keeps you agile in the face of change, whether it’s something you can see coming, like UTIs and UPIs, or whatever arises from the Q&As after the implementation deadlines.
