CME Group

Prior to creating RegTek.Solutions, the CME engaged our team within Risk Focus to help with the processing of FpML based trade reporting messages. The project was an ideal place to use our proprietary “FpML Flattener”, an intelligent transformation engine that creates usable data from FpML reports. The “Flattener” allowed the CME to easily move between FpML and their own reporting formats.

Jonathan Thursby, President, Global Repository Services at CME Group said “They are experts in the trade reporting domain and delivered what we needed, fast and with minimal oversight”.

Deutsche Börse

The Regulatory Reporting Hub of Deutsche Börse Group has launched a partnership with RegTek.Solutions in which key system components, including VALIDATETrade were included in the Regulatory Reporting Hubs’ OTC Trade Reporting solution.

Georg Gross, Head of Regulatory Services at Deutsche Börse, said “In the dynamic environment with frequent updates of regulatory details, the approach using a rules engine has already proven to be very useful. OTC trade reporting is one of the backbones of MiFID II, which is going to be effective as of January 2018. Deutsche Börse’s MiFID II OTC trade reporting service will provide clients with an efficient and simple-to-use way of meeting their OTC transparency requirements in accordance with the new regulation”.


RegTek.Solutions has enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with the DTCC. Our solutions are used by many of the largest Global Trade Repository [GTR] reporting firms and we cover 100% of the global regulatory jurisdictions supported by the GTR. That said, we were very excited when the DTCC chose to use our VALIDATETrade software to help them test and prepare for their EMIR reporting upgrades.

Chris Childs, CEO of DTCC’s Global GTR business said “DTCC believes that the use of this tool internally will enhance quality assurance and pre-UAT testing within the GTR service”.


UBS was the 6th G15 bank to sign up to our VALIDATETrade platform. UBS is initially using VALIDATETrade to enhance and streamline the testing of its proprietary reporting solutions. With a full enterprise license for G20 Reporting to the DTCC Global Trade Repository [GTR], UBS has the opportunity to expand its usage to include proactive control and oversight of the global reporting platform through comprehensive data quality surveillance of daily reporting submissions.

Brian Lynch, CEO of RegTek.Solutions, said “Having enjoyed a long and happy career at UBS I was particularly excited to get them on-board”.

Trusted and established technology integrators partner with RegTek.Solutions to deploy our solutions as part of their own client engagements.
