ESMA Publishes SFTR Reporting Details

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has published further technical details for the reporting of Securities Financing Transactions (SFTs) as required under the SFT Regulation (SFTR).

Today’s publication includes the validations rules applicable to SFTR reports as well as the XML schemas reporting entities should use, including:

  • Counterparty and TR data exchange;
  • Intra-TR data exchange; and
  • TR to authority data exchange.

Under the SFTR, both parties to an SFT need to report new, modified or terminated SFTs to a registered or recognised trade repository (TR), including the composition of the collateral.
