On February 23, 2016, the FSB published proposals for the identification of data elements for monitoring non-cash collateral re-use and for the development of a measure of non-cash collateral re-use. The proposals are part of the FSB’s global securities financing data collection initiative, the Standards for which were published in November 2015. The Standards identify a data element on collateral re-use eligibility to be collected for collateral received or posted for securities financing transactions by national regulators for provision to the FSB. The FSB is proposing to add possible measures of non-cash collateral re-use and related data elements into the Standards to help evaluate global trends on collateral re-use and to assess financial stability risks. Comments on the FSB’s proposals are requested by April 22, 2016. The FSB intends to develop recommendations by the end of 2016.
