The European Securities and Markets Authority (Esma), the EU’s securities markets regulator, has approved the extension of four trade repositories registrations (TRs).
Reporting under the Securities Financing Transactions Regulation, the TRs registrations now include securities financing transactions (SFTs).
The extension also provides for the direct supervision and registration of TRs by Esma, who is the sole supervisor of TRs for the purpose of European market infrastructure regulation and Emir and SFTR in the European Union.
All four TRs have been registered for all types of SFTs, such as repurchase transactions, securities or commodities lending and securities or commodities borrowing transactions, buy-sell back or sell-buy back transactions and margin lending transactions.
TRs are commercial firms that centrally collect and maintain the records of SFTs reported to them.
The TRs concerned are DTCC Derivatives Repository plc, UnaVista TRADEcho B.V., Krajowy Depozyt Papierów Wartościowych S.A. and Regis-TR S.A.
