ERCC Ops FinTech WG
Considering that technology has an important role to play when it comes to alleviating existing frictions in the banks’ back offices and contributing to a more efficient post-trade lifecycle, members of the ICMA ERCC Operations Group decided to set up a new Working Group, chaired by Sanjiv Ingle (Societe Generale), to focus specifically on technology in the area of post-trade.

The main objective of the ICMA Ops FinTech Working Group (WG) will be to develop a better understanding of existing tools and emerging FinTech solutions, including through greater interaction with the relevant providers. This complements ICMA’s efforts to promote automation and efficiency in trade processing, reflected in many of the recent ERCC Ops initiatives, including those focused on matching and affirmation, trade confirmations or collateral messaging.

While formally set up as a sub-group under ICMA’s ERCC Operations Group, the scope of the new group goes beyond repo and also covers solutions in the cash bond space. Participation in the FinTech WG is furthermore not restricted to ERCC Ops members, as the Group aims to serve as an open forum for ICMA members to exchange information on this rapidly moving and fluid market.

The FinTech WG will meet on a regular basis, approximately every 6 weeks. The kick-off session was held on 23 September 2016.
