SFTR Reporting

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

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

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.
