Oct. 2 (Bloomberg) -- Depository Trust & Clearing Corp., operator of a global registry for credit-default swaps and processor of U.S. stock trades, bought Omgeo to expand as regulators demand more transparency and push more contracts through clearinghouses.

DTCC and Thomson Reuters Corp., which competes with Bloomberg News parent Bloomberg LP in financial news and data, had previously been equal partners in the venture. Financial terms of New York-based DTCC’s purchase of full ownership weren’t disclosed in a statement today. Omgeo provides post-trade processing services.

The deal “enables DTCC and Omgeo to facilitate a unified strategy around key industry initiatives including the move to trade date affirmation of institutional trades, settlement matching in DTCC’s subsidiary, Depository Trust Co., and the adoption of shorter settlement cycles in various markets,” Omgeo President and Chief Executive Officer Marianne Brown said in the statement.
