Trade Repository

Trade repository; also: central data repository (CDR)

Platform where data on traded derivatives contracts is registered and post-trade recordkeeping on contracts is enabled. A repository provides information on, for example, the number and value of outstanding contracts, the size of counterparty risk or outstanding positions. Derivatives traded on- and off-exchange in the EU have to be registered with a TR. At Deutsche Börse Group, REGIS-TR S.A., based in Luxembourg, is responsible for these tasks and supports European market participants in fulfilling their regulatory duties (here: EMIR).
