The Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC), a provider of post-trade market infrastructure for the global financial services industry, has announced its Global Trade Repository (GTR) has added trade repository services for the Canadian province of Newfoundland and Labrador, giving the company complete Canadian coverage.
