About the ANNA Derivatives Service Bureau
The DSB is being developed to serve the needs of the OTC derivatives market participants and regulators for unique identification of these financial products through allocation of the International Securities Identification Number (ISIN). The ISIN is a globally recognized and adopted ISO standard for identifying financial instruments. The development timeline is keyed to industry implementation before the in-force date of MiFID 2 in January 2018.
More detailed information on the DSB can be found in recent announcements at the ANNA website.
