CCP-Cleared Repos

CCP-Cleared Repos

In this video, Richard covers CCP-cleared repos. He explains the difference between clearing by the technique of open offer versus the technique of novation. Richard also reviews the different types of repo and data fields special to CCP-cleared repos.
Overview

SFTR is a major regulatory reporting requirement for anyone transacting repo and other securities financing transactions in the EU, no matter how limited their activity. The reporting requirements cover all aspects of these transactions, including life-cycle events and re-use of collateral, and are therefore complex.

In order to meet the regulator’s demand for complete, accurate and timely data, firms are devoting considerable resources to the speedy remediation of rejected or unreconciled reports. It is likely that, at least initially, a high percentage of reports will be rejected or be qualified as incomplete or inaccurate, primarily due to poor drafting of the regulation and accompanying material.

This course provides a systematic and detailed insight into reporting repos under SFTR that uniquely incorporates the results of the work by the industry (the ICMA SFTR Task Force) on interpreting the regulatory requirements, filling in the gaps and dealing with the contradictions and mistakes.

Key learning objectives:

  • Explain the difference between clearing by open offer and clearing by novation

  • Explain special data fields for reporting CCP-cleared repos

  • Who generates the RTN?
