UnaVista is delighted to announce that it has been selected by LCH’s RepoClear as their trade repository to meet their reporting obligations under the Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR). LCH Group’s Collateral and Liquidity Management function will also be using UnaVista for its SFTR reporting. SFTR is scheduled to go live in April next year and will require firms to report details of their Securities Financing Transactions (SFTs) to an approved trade repository. Known as the ‘MiFID II for repo’, the regulation is designed to increase transparency, allowing regulatory authorities to assess the risks associated with these transactions. LCH provides Europe’s leading clearing service for government bond and repo markets, with €197 trillion cleared across the group in 2018.
