London Stock Exchange Group celebrates the SFTR accelerator

SFTR transaction reporting is the next big regulation anticipated by the finance industry and London Stock Exchange Group's UnaVista, the regulatory reporting and data analytics platform will be helping firms fulfil their regulatory reporting obligations.

In line with London Stock Exchange Group's Open Access, UnaVista works with various market participants to help reduce regulatory and operational risks for firms with a reporting obligation.

Today, we are extremely pleased to host the SFTR Breakfast Briefing alongside internal and external partners including MTS and IHS Markit and we continue to work together to provide firms with a seamless reporting process.

The SFTR Breakfast Briefing was organised to help reporting firms explore some of the key challenges of the regulation from the perspective of various market participants.

We are also fortunate to welcome two leading industry advocates from ICMA (International Capital Markets Association) and ISLA (International Securities Lending Association) participating in the briefing today and sharing some valuable insight with our audience.

UnaVista is also delighted to be launching the SFTR Accelerator tool which is a pre-project management tool to help firms in the preparation for SFTR.

The SFTR Accelerator tool allows firms to carry out a gap analysis to see what data they still need to collect allowing them to contact vendors and counterparties well in advance of go-live.
