SFTR Reporting

The Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) is an extensive set of requirements from ESMA.

Article 4 – the reporting requirement – is now live for investment firms and will go live for buy-side firms in October 2020.

Our Senior Regulatory Reporting Specialist Jonathan Lee on the controls firms need for accurate SFTR reporting

What is SFTR?

SFTR aims to improve transparency and reduce risks in securities financing markets; namely the repo, securities lending, buy-sellback and margin lending (prime brokerage) markets.

Firms trading securities financing products (financial and non-financial) must report details of all securities financing transactions to ESMA via a trade repository.
