SFTR - Part I

SFTR is a major regulatory reporting requirement for anyone transacting repo and other securities financing transactions in the EU, no matter how limited their activity. In order to meet the regulator’s demand for complete, accurate and timely data, firms are devoting considerable resources to the speedy remediation of rejected or unreconciled reports. This is the first of two pathways, and seeks to provide a systematic and detailed insight into reporting repos under SFTR. This video series was produced in time for the implementation of phase 1 of the SFTR, on 13 July, whilst under restricted lockdown conditions. The videos will be updated to reflect our highest standards, as soon as conditions permit. These videos were shot on the 10th of June 2020, and reflect the status of regulation as at that date. These videos will periodically be updated to reflect pertinent changes in regulation.
