ESMA publishes first Q&As on SFTR reporting

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) published its first set of Questions and Answers relating to reporting under the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR).

The purpose of this Q&A is to provide greater clarity to market participants on how to comply with their reporting requirements under SFTR. The Q&A includes clarifications on how reporting of certain business events should be performed, such as:

  • Reporting of fields related to time and applicable calendars
  • Reporting of settlement legs
  • Reporting of SFTs collateralized initially at transaction and then at net exposure level
  • Reporting of SFTs concluded off venue and cleared on the same day
  • Reporting of zero collateral for margin loans

The set of Q&A complements ESMA’s guidance on reporting under SFTR and is aimed at trade repositories and at entities that have a reporting obligation under SFTR.
