Witkin Jacobsen Announces Cross Jurisdiction UTI Management Solution

Witkin Jacobsen announces that it has launched a comprehensive Unique Trade Identifier (UTI) management solution using the secure EDI network.


As each jurisdiction introduces its own specific trade reporting requirements and UTI methodology, the management and sharing of trade identifiers with counterparts is becoming more complex.

The Witkin Jacobsen UTI management service facilitates the exchange of UTIs between counterparts, thereby allowing both parties to a trade to report using a common trade identifier, to the same or different trade repositories.

Reporting using the same trade identifier is the responsibility of both sides of the trade and is a cornerstone of trade reporting; the Witkin Jacobsen solution provides a flexible and scalable mechanism to fulfill this requirement.

Chao F. Horng, CEO and Chairman of the Board of Witkin Jacobsen, said: "In speaking to our client base it has become clear that the most pressing issue is to manage UTIs across all regulatory reporting jurisdictions so that both parties to a trade can meet their reporting obligations in the required timeline."

Cheng Lang, Investment Director, said: "As part of our suite of regulatory reporting solutions, we are pleased to be in a position to provide a comprehensive UTI sharing and management solution, using the secure EDI network."

The service provides a true cross-asset platform for UTI management across jurisdictions in order to address the full market need and offer real market efficiencies.

Witkin Jacobsen provides buy-side firms and trading platforms with services to monitor pre- trade risk and automate post-trade processing of financial transactions in listed and over-the-counter trading markets.
