This paper outlines a high-level view of the incoming Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR), which is set to come in to force in April 2020. The regulation is the product of work carried out by the Financial Stability Board (FSB) and the European Systemic Risk Board (ESRB) to curb shadow banking. It is intended to enhance the transparency of the securities financing markets by requiring those who enter into securities financing transactions (SFTs) to report the SFT to a trade repository (TR). In this document, we provide a perspective on:
- the key facets of SFTR (who's affected; what needs to be reported; the timeline; the data required)
- key challenges and considerations (a high-level tick list of where to start)
- deployment and optimising operational processes (steps to take and how TORI can help)
