SFT Regulation Comes into Effect on 12 January 2016

Impact on fund managers

Background and Timing

Regulation (EU) 2015/2365 on Transparency of Securities Financing Transactions and of Reuse (the ‘SFT Regulation’) has been published in the EU Official Journal and applies from 12 January 2016. As an EU regulation, it applies directly in each EU Member State without the need for local implementing legislation.


The SFT Regulation applies to securities financing transactions (‘SFTs’) and total return swaps (‘TRSs’). An SFT, for these purposes, includes repo transactions, securities or commodities lending or borrowing, buysell back or sell-buy back transactions, and margin lending.

This article describes the provisions of the SFT Regulation that will be of particular relevance to alternative investment fund managers (‘AIFMs’) established in the EU, management companies of Undertakings for Collective Investment in Transferable Securities (‘UCITS’), and firms that provide investment management services to alternative investment funds (‘AIFs’) and UCITS on a delegated basis (collectively, ‘fund managers’).
