Following consultation with the European Commission and ESMA, Market FinReg developed the world’s first SFTR transaction reporting training programme, which was subsequently accredited in April 2018. The training solution comprises a comprehensive end-to-end solution allowing delegates to understand the backdrop of SFTR.

The training solution is live and can be offered both in person at REGIS-TR’s premises in London, Luxembourg, Madrid and Frankfurt and also online allowing delegates from across Europe and the world to receive high-quality training from the convenience of their office.

“We have received significant demand from participants for training and insight into SFTR and its reporting regime. With Market FinReg having taken an industry lead in advocating and liaising directly with the European Commission and ESMA, and with our pedigree as a leading pan-European Trade Repository, participants now have access to one of the most advanced SFTR training programmes. We’re delighted to be working with Market FinReg on this initiative,” said John Kernan, Head of Product Management and Business Development, REGIS-TR.

Seb Malik, Managing Director, Market FinReg, said: “There is a real thirst for granular knowledge in the industry; by collaborating with a leading trade repository, we can ensure that our joint expertise is presented to firms far and wide. 2019 will be all hands on deck for SFTR implementation for thousands of firms; I am, of course, delighted to be working with REGIS-TR – the specialist pan-European trade repository whose name speaks for itself. This collaboration empowers thousands of UCITS, Alternative Investment Funds, MiFID II firms, banks, insurance companies and other affected parties to understand the granular details of precisely what SFTR entails and how to transaction report. I look forward to working with REGIS-TR in delivering SFTR training.”
