In 2018 the DSB established a new industry committee to support the DSB Board on technology issues to ensure that the DSB’s technology strategy is aligned with the needs of the markets it serves. The DSB Technology Advisory Committee (TAC) is comprised of representatives of DSB user organizations, independent experts and regulatory observers.
The financial industry has historically been at the forefront of the adoption of innovative technology. Today the fintech sphere encompasses both significant developments in established thinking, such as Big Data, as well as disruptive technologies such as distributed ledgers. As part of the essential data infrastructure of finance, the Derivatives Service Bureau has been developed on open software and system architectures that support the rapid change being witnessed in market infrastructures.
Further information about the mission, membership and operations of the TAC may found in the TAC charter.
