SFTR – Securities Financing Transactions Regulation Get ready now for upcoming reporting requirements

Securities Financing Transactions and of re-use (SFTR) went into force in January 2016. Reporting requirements will be phased-in in four stages depending on counterparty classification beginning 12 months after adoption of the Level 2 delegated acts (RTS). As ESMA needs to submit the draft RTS by 13th of Jan ‘17 to the Commission, reporting will not commence before Q1/18 for the first group of counterparties.
