Reminder - TRACE Depository Institution Reporting

May 05, 2022

As announced by the Board of the Federal Reserve System in the Federal Register on October 28, 2021, FINRA will collect detailed data on depository institutions' daily transactions of marketable U.S. Treasury securities and of the debt and MBS issued by U.S. federal government agencies including government-sponsored enterprises (agencies) via its Trade Reporting and Compliance Engine (TRACE).

As a reminder, the effective date for this program is Thursday, September 1, 2022.

Every national bank, state member bank, state non-member bank, savings association, or U.S. branch and agency of a foreign bank filing a Notice of Government Securities Broker or Government Dealer Activities Form with average daily transaction volumes of over $100 million for U.S. Treasury securities, or over $50 million for agency-issued debt and MBS, during the prior fiscal year will be subject to the reporting requirements. 

FINRA has a dedicated web page referencing this initiative. Information on TRACE access and reporting requirements in addition to other important steps for the program are included. Interested clients are encouraged to review and use this page as a guide.
