Derivatives Service Bureau Opens RFI On Reference Data Provider

The Derivatives Service Bureau (DSB) has today opened a Request for Information (RFI) process to identify a reference data provider for provision of underlier identifiers for the Unique Product Identifier (UPI). A requirement of the UPI (which will be available from the DSB from Q3 2022) is to support the use of multiple underlier identifiers and reference data elements.

Emma Kalliomaki, Managing Director of ANNA and the DSB, said, “The UPI is going to be critical to the international markets allowing regulators to aggregate global data reportable to trade repositories. Having a reliable reference data source for underliers is vitally important. We are interested in receiving submissions from reference data providers who are able to satisfy the criteria set out in our RFI documentation.”

Clarifications are sought from interested parties by the 9th April 2021 and the closing deadline for respondents is the 23rd April 2021. The DSB aims to finalise the selection process by the middle of the year.
