The CTM™ service is our strategic platform for the central matching of cross-border and domestic transactions automating the trade confirmation process across multiple asset classes, such as equities, fixed income, and repurchase agreements (repos).

This area of the Learning Center provides you with resources to understand how your organization can leverage the various user interface and message interface options to efficiently match and confirm trade details, increase transparency and mitigate risk.

To learn more, select a CTM topic from the menu on the left.
