SFTR Service

Regulation (EU) 2015/2365 of the European Parliament and of the Council of 25 November 2015 on transparency of securities financing transactions and of reuse and amending Regulation (EU) No 648/2012 (SFTR) imposes an obligation to report securities financing transactions (SFTs), which requires counterparties and central counterparties to ensure that the details of any SFT contract they have concluded and of any modification or termination of the contract are reported to a Trade Repository.

According to the SFTR, counterparties may delegate the reporting of the details of SFTs to a third party.

ATHEXClear provides the SFTR service in order to facilitate Clearing Members and their clients in the fulfilment of their reporting obligations in accordance with the SFTR.
