Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR)

Regime-agnostic data-driven platform enables counterparties to determine eligibility, manage exceptions, report to TRs for mandates including SFTR, EMIR, MiFIR


Device Frame
A New Regime

The European Commission’s Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) adds another layer to ever-evolving, more stringent and complex trade and transaction reporting requirements. SFTR increases the reporting burden and risk of compliance breaches that counterparties already face.

Trades In Scope

  • Securities and commodities lending and borrowing
  • Repurchases

  • Buy/sell-backs and sell/buy-backs
  • Margin lending

Eligible Counterparties

  • European Union (EU) counterparties
  • Non-financial counterparties
  • Financial counterparties

  • Any branches of EU entities domiciled outside the EU
  • Any branches of non-EU entities located in the EU

Life Cycle Events

  • Counterparties must report SFT details to trade repositories (TRs) within a T+1 timeline

  • Conclusion, Modification, Termination

Questions to Consider

  • Are we technologically prepared to automate all TR submissions, including delegated submissions?
  • Can our data collection, validation, enrichment, and submission process scale to accommodate SFTR?
  • Is our infrastructure equipped to accommodate yet another trade and transaction regulation regime?

  • Can we integrate our current regime processes to achieve transparency and reduce resource burdens for reporting submissions?
  • Is our approach to addressing the reconciliation of unpaired and unmatched trades efficient and in line with industry best practices?
