A Taste of What's on the Agenda....
Updates on ESMA's latest Guidance for Regulatory Reporting Under SFTR
Obtain timely regulatory updates on the reporting requirements of SFTR. The conference is timed to include direct input from senior level policy makers and analysis of the very latest updates to RTS, ITS, Guidance and and regulatory Q&As. This provides an excellent opportunity to obtain clarifications in relation to the requirements for submission of transaction reports under SFTR beginning in April 2020.
Future directions in market data regulatory reporting
ESMA has convened a new group which will shape the future direction of market data regulatory reporting. We explore the underlying drivers for supervisory change in this critical area of regulation. Where is the pressure for change internationally and what are the next steps for trade and transaction reporting specialists? What role will digital reporting play in a new data-driven supervisory regime?
Spotlight on regulatory reporting data quality - Implementing the 'Data Quality Action Plan'
Buy side and sell side firms are under mounting pressure to ensure completeness, accuracy, validity, and timeliness of their reporting - whilst being vigilant for potential over and under reporting. Regulators expect ever greater levels of compliance. Sky-high fines for failures in reporting demonstrate the need for robust quality assurance. How can firms make sure their data for regulatory submissions meet regulatory requirements? You'll explore the latest techniques available to firms seeking to evidence best practices.
Analysing recent developments in the availability and reporting of referential data
Several agencies are involved in optimising the quality, reliability and usability of LEI data which lies at the heart of regulatory disclosures. Delegates will hear updates from the Derivatives Services Bureau - the generator of International Securities Identification Numbers (ISINs) for OTC derivatives. The conference also explores the key areas of interactions between market participants and ESMA's Financial Instrument Reference Database (FIRDS).

Practical advice on planning and preparing for SFTR reporting
Securities Financing Transactions Regulation (SFTR) is the latest regulatory move to enhance transparency in financial markets. The disclosure and reporting component of SFTR presents major compliance challenges for any firm engaged in stock lending, repo or the re-use or re-hypothecation of collateral. The key question for firms is when the new requirements will go live. We bring together the policy makers behind the rules to clarify the SFTR reporting timeframes and examine the implications for firms.
