CSS Breakfast Briefs – SFTR: A Review of the Reporting Challenges

On 14 April 2020 banks and investment firms need to send their first transaction report for SFTR.

SFTR is undoubtedly a complex regime and the reporting requirements will present numerous operational and data challenges. That is why CSS, together with leading Trade Repositories, are providing a comprehensive guide to SFTR, its challenges and the implications it will have on other reporting regimes during breakfast briefs in Dublin (20 May), London (22 May) and Stockholm (24 May).

Speakers at the event are our SFTR Lead Nicklas Nilsson together with product experts from our Partners DTCC, REGIS-TR and UnaVista. Please register to secure your seat at one of the events.


CSS Regulatory Spotlight: Costs and Charges, Calculation Challenges  & MMFR

In the run-up to 1 January 2018, financial firms were rushing to comply with PRIIPS and MiFID II. A year on, we can see that cost and charges in general and transaction cost calculations in particular are proving to be notably challenging areas for firms. In this breakfast brief we will address the current state of PRIIPs and the challenges we encounter with cost & charges template dissemination and transaction cost calculations. 

In the brief we will also address the new disclosure and reporting regime for Money Market Funds, that will require managers of MMFs to report and disclose relevant information to the authorities. We will disclose the who, what and when of MMFR and prepare you for the go-live in Q1 2020.
