REGIS-TR aims to provide an efficient and user-friendly expert solution for all SFTR requirements through a flexible account structure that will seamlessly integrate all reporting options.
Upon the news that REGIS-TR has been authorised for SFTR, Thomas Steimann, CEO of REGIS-TR, said: “We are delighted to be expanding our product offering to SFTR services, combining our wealth of knowledge in securities financing and expertise in regulatory reporting. Alleviating the reporting burden for market participants, we are the natural choice of trade repository for SFTR.”

In accordance with legislation promoting market transparency, the detail of the trades reported is aggregated to present a composite view of current positions for the benefit of regulatory authorities and market participants. REGIS-TR is open to financial and non-financial companies and institutions.
