Derivatives Service Bureau expands product committee membership
December 4, 2018

The Derivatives Service Bureau, founded by the Association of National Numbering Agencies (ANNA) to facilitate the allocation and maintenance of International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs) for OTC Derivatives, has today announced a new Product Committee membership for its second term, which will serve to further broaden industry collaboration.

The DSB says it values representation on a fair and equitable basis within the ISIN user community. It adds that following extensive industry consultation and a lengthy invitation process for industry participation, distributed to all DSB users and other interested parties (over 2,800 individuals), the new Product Committee membership has been chosen based on experience, asset class and workflow expertise and geographical representation across all user categories.

From January 8, five trade associations will now be joining as non-voting members, to contribute to a balanced representation of asset class knowledge and geographical representation. Representation will expand on the existing buy-side, sell-side and trading venues, thereby increasing voting members to also include two new categories - custodians and data vendors. In addition, the role of Chair will transition from the DSB to two external Co-Chairs directly from industry, to maintain strict neutral and impartial discussion.

Malavika Solanki, a Member of the DSB Management Team, said: "With this new Product Committee membership and the broad-based expertise they bring, the DSB can now move from developing ISIN products and defining product templates, to solving additional OTC Derivative ISIN use cases and examining the introduction of hierarchies, as well as discussions on what to prioritize."
