CAT Counterparty Contact Utility

The Financial Information Forum (FIF) announces the launch of a CAT Counterparty Contact Utility, a secure central repository of CAT counterparty contact information.  Upon request and approval, brokers will be permitted to access the Utility to obtain the contact information of counterparties on an accelerated basis. The Utility will facilitate compliance with the CAT requirement that obligates brokers to repair interfirm linkage errors by T+3 (trading day of the event (T) + three trading days).  Access to the Utility will be made available to all CAT reporting brokers, regardless of whether the broker is a current FIF member.
