The Depository Trust & Clearing Corporation (DTCC) has launched DTCC Consulting Services, a new advisory service to provide market participants around the world with access to the firm’s expertise and experience in post-trade processing. DTCC will offer specialised, client-focused consulting services to help firms transform their post-trade business operations, including conducting initial infrastructure diagnostics, providing expert insight on their operational model design and on identifying their benchmarks, and helping firms to deliver on their strategy. Subject-matter experts will then be deployed with relevant industry knowledge and expertise to guide firms in the decisions they make throughout the process. DTCC has engaged Quorsus, providers of specialist consulting services to financial institutions, in support of launching the service.

With DTCC Consulting Services, clients will be able to leverage an integrated set of services that add value at every stage of the post-trade processing lifecycle.  DTCC’s consulting framework covers initial diagnostics through to the design, implementation and project management stages.
