About the Trade Data Network Initiative

The Trade Data Network (TDN) is an industry initiative that provides a shared ledger of trading information to address the fragmentation and lack of transparency in exchange traded derivatives (ETD) post-trade processing. The TDN initiative currently includes 17 banks/brokers and 40 investment managers and hedge funds with combined assets under management of over $37 trillion.

The initial rollout of TDN is focused on allocations processing and trade confirmations, with trade lifecycle transparency across the multiple brokers and the clearinghouse on each trade. Additional features include benchmarking, metrics tracking and reporting to drive best practices across the ecosystem. The initiative is also designed to drive value for the independent software vendor (ISV) community by reducing complexity in delivering services to clients.
