SFTR – Securities Financing Transactions Regulation – One Day Course: London, United Kingdom – March 23, 2020

The “SFTR – Securities Financing Transactions Regulation” training has been added to ResearchAndMarkets.com’s offering.

The Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) forms a central element of the European Commission’s strategy to reduce perceived ‘shadow banking’ risks in the securities financing markets. It forms part of the EU’s response to the Financial Stability Board’s August 2013 policy proposals on Securities Lending and Repos. This one day course describes the key requirements of the SFTR and explores the issues faced by practitioners as the market prepares for implementation.

There has never been before a requirement for reporting of securities financing transactions. Whereas firms are conversant with the demands of MiFIR and EMIR already in place, reporting relating to securities financing is a new arena, presenting significant challenges. The course is designed for practitioners to help understand the unique demands of this new reporting regulation.
