SFTR Public Data


Since 13 July 2020, EU-incorporated and located banks and investment firms, as well as CCPs and CSDs, have had an obligation to report all new SFTs and subsequent life-cycle events to authorised trade repositories (TRs), who are responsible for validating the reports, reconciling the data and making the results available to regulators. All TRs authorised under SFTR - currently these are DTCC, Regis-TR, UnaVista and KDPW - are required to publish, every Tuesday, a set of summary statistics for the previous week.

ICMA will be collecting, aggregating and tabulating this data each week, and will provide regular detailed analysis in the form of charts and commentary, which will contribute to enhanced transparency of the repo market. The SFTR data will also be used to enrich other ICMA publications on repo, such as the twice yearly European Repo Market Survey, which will continue. However, it is important to note that, as not all aspects of SFTR have been finalised, the quality and consistency of the reported data is expected to gradually improve over time.

Based on extensive input from its SFTR Task Force, representing more than 150 firms across the repo market, ICMA has put together detailed best practice recommendations and sample repo reports which complement and supplement the regulatory framework and aim to ensure consistency in firms’ implementation efforts.

Latest SFTR data published for week 14

This week’s public data includes for the first time reports from buy-side firms, following the successful phase 3 go-live last Monday. Compared to previous weeks, no major changes stand out from the consolidated data. Loan values and transaction volumes for both newly reported SFTs as well as outstanding SFTs broadly follow previous trends. Figures on market structure, such as execution venues or CCP-clearing, also seem to be in line with previous findings. This is of course not a surprise given the double-sided nature of SFTR reporting, which means that in theory the previous data already included at least one side of the vast majority of trades. However, it is good to see the theory confirmed in the actual data. Another issue that hasn’t changed compared to previous reports is the problem with collateral data. This continues to be distorted by some underlying problems with the aggregation logic and large outliers.
