Meet your SFTR (Securities Financing Transactions Regulation) reporting obligations with full end to end regulatory reporting solutions
What is SFTR?
As part of the policies identified by the Financial Stability Board to increase transparency across securities financing transactions (SFTs), the EU introduced the Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR). The SFTR includes new rules compelling market participants to report all SFTs to an approved trade repository and radically restructure their data architecture – integrating numerous and often disparate, data sources to enhance transparency. Financial counterparties, non-financial counterparties, EU-based entities including their non-EU-based branches, and non-EU entities where the transaction is concluded by an EU-based branch must all comply.
