The Regulation on transparency of securities financing transactions (SFTR), which creates a framework under which details of securities financing transactions (SFTs) can be efficiently reported to trade repositories and information on SFTs and total return swaps is disclosed to investors in collective investment undertakings, has been published in the OJEU. SFTR applies in principle from 12 January 2016, but many of its requirements have a later application date and some depend on Commission delegated acts. (Source: SFTR Published in OJEU)
