Industry Initiatives

When uncleared margin rules came into effect in September 2016, AcadiaSoft recognized the needs of the industry for a new, highly automated and a cooperative way to comply. We solved this challenge by partnering with TriOptima and DTCC-EuroClear Global Collateral joint venture on its AcadiaSoft Hub Initiative.

The Hub links AcadiaSoft’s industry-leading electronic messaging service for OTC derivatives with TriOptima’s triResolve OTC trade reconciliation service and the Margin Transit Utility (MTU) to be operated by the DTCC-Euroclear Global Collateral joint venture.
