Derivatives Service Bureau announces 2019 fees
December 5, 2018

The Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB), the fully automated generator of International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs) for the OTC derivatives market, has today published its user fees for 2019. The DSB says it provides a trusted service which puts the user first, working on a cost recovery basis only. It says this coming year's fees reflect the increase in the number of DSB users, as well as some user type adjustments following a year of operational activity which has enabled users to have a better view of their connectivity requirements.

Now used in 33 countries, the DSB was established by the Association of Numbering Agencies (ANNA) in 2017. Moving into its second year of operations, the 2019 fees reflect the normal and expected yearly adjustments, allowing for industry's own recalibrations following this past year's implementation requirements resulting from MiFID II (markets in financial instruments directive II), and additional functionality requested by industry during the annual consultation process.

Power users, DSB users who require programmatic connectivity to ISINs in real-time, have dropped slightly in number from 78 to 73, reflecting a shift by some users to the standard or infrequent user type and to the consumption of the DSB's free end of day data.

This has meant that whilst overall costs have reduced slightly in 2019, there is a slight increase in the per user fees for Power and Standard User fees by 4.5 percent for next year. Infrequent users (a category created to assist low volume and/or ad-hoc users) will see their fees unchanged in 2019. Additionally, there are now 12 standard users, up from 10, and 29 infrequent users, up from 15.
