High-Quality Data for Your SFTR Reporting

Make Sure to Achieve SFTR Compliance with Relied-on Reference Data

The Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) has a major impact on the reporting entities (investment banking, CCPs, CSDs, insurance firms, pension funds…) as it concerns the repurchase of transactions, the lending and borrowing of securities or commodities, the buy-sell back transactions or sell-buy back transactions, the margin lending transactions.

With its data offering, SIX supports the industry in its compliance effort to increase transparency of securities financing markets, avoid activities exercised by traditional banks to be shifted to less regulated areas such as the shadow banking sector, monitor and reach out for more transparency in the area of collateral reuse.

How You Will Benefit

Master the Reference Data Challenges of the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation

The EU’s Securities Financing Transactions Regulation was originally triggered by the global financial crisis in 2007–2008, where the financial industry was characterized by excessive speculative activities, regulatory gaps, ineffective supervision, opaque markets and complex investment products.

The regulation is extensive, with around 150 data fields in its mandatory regulatory reports – based on the Commission Implementing Regulation. Formats to be used for SFTR reporting on the details of securities financing transactions are: counterparty data (35 fields), loan and collateral data (99 fields), margin data (20 fields), re-use, cash reinvestment and funding data (18 fields).

With the SFTR data service SIX provides an extensive set covering the reference data fields with a special focus on the “Loan and Collateral Data” template.

Reporting entities require access to high-quality reference and descriptive data for their SFTR compliance.
