Universal Trade Capture (UTC)About Universal Trade Capture (UTC)

The Universal Trade Capture (UTC) initiative has consolidated and modernized the trade capture reporting process. In doing so, UTC created a single validation and reporting engine for NSCC’s four legacy trade capture systems (Correspondent Clearing, Over-the-Counter, New York Stock Exchange, and Regional Interface Operation). This engine increases NSCC throughput and reduces storage costs, which increases efficiencies and accommodates future growth in trading volume. UTC also introduces a standardized input record from all marketplaces to eliminate the need for firms to run their own internal conversion programs or outsource the function to third parties – reducing the cost and complexity of the post-trade process.
