Event Overview

This webinar is aimed at ICMA members in the Asia-Pacific region who have offices in the EU or transact repos with counterparties in the EU. It is intended to clarify who has to report under SFTR, what has to be reported, and when and how reports have to be made.
Given the limited time, there will be no reflection on the history or rationale for SFTR. The functioning of the trade repositories to whom reports are to be submitted will also not be discussed. Although SFTR encompasses repo, securities lending, commodities lending and margin lending, the webinar will stick to repo. The webinar will flag up major current issues.
The webinar will consist of a presentation that is scheduled to last for one hour and up to half-an-hour for questions. Participants are encouraged to send questions in advance if they can, so the issues raised can be incorporated in the presentation. Participants are also welcome to submit questions by e-mail after the webinar
The first phase of reporting under the EU Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) will  go live in April 2020, introducing extensive new reporting requirements for repo transactions.
 
This webinar is aimed at ICMA members outside Europe who either have offices in the EU or transact repos with counterparties in the EU. It is intended to clarify who has to report repo transactions under SFTR, what has to be reported, and when and how reports have to be made.
 
The  presentation is scheduled to last for one hour, with  a further half-an-hour for questions. Participants will be encouraged to send questions in advance, so that any issues they raise can be incorporated in the presentation. Participants are also welcome to submit questions by e-mail after the webinar.

The webinar will be conducted by Richard Comotto, who is Senior Consultant to the ICMA on repo issues and is a member of the ICMA’s SFTR Task Force.
