FSB, BIS release SFT reporting guidelines
March 6, 2018

The Financial Stability Board has this week issued a paper setting out reporting guidelines for securities financing transactions.

This is the latest in a series on the topic. It follows the report called Policy Framework for Addressing Shadow Banking Risks in Securities Lending and Repos which was published in August 2013. That report set out final recommendations to address financial stability risks in relation to securities lending and repos.

These included recommendations for national and regional authorities to improve data collection on securities lending and repo markets in order to detect financial stability risks and develop policy responses, and for the FSB to aggregate total national and regional data for these markets in order to assess global trends in financial stability.

Then in November 2015, the FSB published the report Standards and Processes for Global Securities Financing Data Collection and Aggregation that set out, along with recommendations to national and regional authorities related to the collection of data from market participants, the finalised standards and processes for global securities financing data collection and aggregation for the reporting of aggregates by these authorities to the FSB.

This latest document moves on to define the reporting guidelines for implementing the November 2015 FSB Global Securities Financing Data Standards.
