The BBA responds to ESMA’s discussion paper on the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR)

On 22 April, the BBA submitted a response to ESMA’s wide-ranging discussion paper on draft regulatory and implementing technical standards under SFTR. We welcome the opportunity to engage with ESMA on these draft RTS and ITS, to ensure that the European Commission’s objectives of increased transparency and monitoring risk are met whilst maintaining the strengths of the existing market in SFTs.
