FpML 5.0 Recommendation

FpML 5.0 Recommendation

July 07, 2010 - Build 8

Note: This is a prototype implementation of FpML 5.0 that supports the ‘views’ concept as described in the Architecture Specification 3.0 [link to http://www.fpml.org/spec/fpml-arch-3-0-lcwd-1/]. The schemas, examples, and specification are subject to change as a result of user’s feedback and further development from the FpML community. Online Documentation: (HTML format with Menu: View in HTML format using frames and a javascript menu to facilitate navigation through the specfication.)
Used for confirming the precise details of contracts and post-trade business events. It is intended to have similar characteristics to the FpML 1-4 product representation, i.e. a very detailed product representation capturing the details needed for a transaction confirmation.

Risk Reporting & Collateral

Used for reporting trading and business activities and positions (including as part of STP flows), as well as processes such as reconciliation. This view has a moderately loose product representation; it requires key economic information such as the notional, key dates, and parties, but leaves other information optional.
