The inSITETM service provides a web-based repository for storing broker/dealer confirmation disclosures. It allows broker/dealers to post their disclosures to the inSITE web site based on established enrichment profile crtieria that generates a reference number unique to that specific disclosure document. The confirm submitted by the broker/dealer through the CTM and TradeSuite ID services is then enriched with the inSITE URL and reference number assigned to the relevant disclosure. Investment managers and parties to the trade can then use the URL and reference number to view the associated confirm disclosure through the inSITE Viewer web site.

Providing the confirm disclosure with the trade confirm reduces costs for the broker/dealers, since they can eliminate the mailing of paper confirms.

Use the documentation and videos in this section to learn more about how the inSITE service works, for both broker/dealers who need to upload confirm disclosures and establish enrichment profiles and counterparties who want to access and view the enriched confirm disclosures.

CTM Confirm Archive and TradeSuite ID Confirm Archive are real-time, web-based services that allow users to electronically search and retrieve trade confirmations matched in either CTM or TradeSuite ID. Users can log in to the service to access up to ten years of confirmation history quickly, easily and efficiently. Confirm Archive streamlines archive management while complying with all requirements for retention and safekeeping of electronic confirmations. 

Use the courses, documentation and videos in this section to learn more about how Confirm Archive works for both users of the CTM and TradeSuite ID services.
