The next regulatory challenge facing firms operating in the EU is here: the Securities Financing Transaction Regulation (SFTR), which aims to increase transparency in the use of repos and stock loans, and on the risks around entering collateral arrangements.

Under the new rules firms that enter into collateralised transactions such as repos, securities or commodity lending or borrowing transactions as well as margin loans and total risk return swaps, need to comply with SFTR. Both financial and, ultimately, non-financial companies will be required to report such transactions to approved trade repositories.
