SFTR Reporting goes live for the buy-side

Our SFTR Reporting Specialist Jonathan Lee on the challenges buy-side firms are facing as the SFTR reporting obligation goes live for them today.  The interview covers the following questions:

  • SFTR reporting seemed to go smoothly for the first and second cohort of firms in July. Is it likely to be the same for the buy-side?
  • How is SFTR reporting different for buy-side firms than sell-side firms?
  • What’s your advice for buy-side firms planning to fully delegate their reporting?
  • Do you expect reporting quality to be better or worse?
  • Any advice for buy-side firms for the next few weeks?
