Northern Trust Adds Messaging Format for STP of OTC Derivative Trades

Northern Trust has become one of the first asset servicers to adopt the Financial Product Mark-up Language (FpML) messaging format in processing over-the-counter (OTC) derivative trades. As part of Northern Trust’s move towards increasing automation and straight-through processing (STP) in OTC derivative trade processing, this format can be used for Northern Trust’s clients worldwide. FpML is a messaging format which automates the flow of information between an asset servicer like Northern Trust and its clients and operates independently of any underlying software or hardware infrastructure pertaining to derivative trades. “The format enables us to accept and deliver new trade messages electronically and in a standard, replicated way,” said Stephen Andress, global head of derivatives processing at Northern Trust. “This increases automation and means that we can process trades faster and with increased accuracy.” Northern Trust is able to use the FpML standard for all its clients – asset managers and asset owners – requiring OTC trade capture, and has already implemented the system for a high-profile investment manager client.
