7 Things We Learned at DTCC’s SFTR Buyside Briefing

By DTCC Connection Staff | Oct 01, 2019

Buyside firms impacted by the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) reporting requirement are just over a year out from an October 2020 compliance date. With the clock counting down to go-live, DTCC is taking a leading role in furthering industry dialogue around the path to implementation and the challenges along the way.

Earlier this month DTCC, IHS Markit and Pirum Systems brought together representatives from nearly 50 buyside firms in London for an open dialogue on where firms are in their preparations and how far they have to go. To facilitate this discussion, attendees of the SFTR Buyside Breakfast Briefing participated in live polling on topics ranging from vendor selection, delegated reporting, unique trade identifier (UTI) generation and more.
