SFTR (Securities Financing Transactions Regulation) Solution

Meet your SFTR reporting obligations

What is SFTR?

As part of the policies identified by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) to increase transparency across Securities Financing Transactions (SFTs), the EU introduced the Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR). The regulation includes a number of new rules for market participants including a requirement to report all SFTs to an approved Trade Repository (TR). The trade-reporting regulation mandated under Article 4 of the draft SFTR legislation will compel the securities finance industry to radically restructure its data architecture – integrating numerous and often disparate, data sources to enhance transparency.
