Will SFTR will bring opportunity as well as pain?
An audience of 700+ securities finance professionals at Clearstream’s recent Global Funding & Finance conference think so. David Field chaired a panel exploring the impact of regulation (not just SFTR!) on the securities finance industry. The Field Effect has identified at least four areas where firms can generate opportunity from regulation. But it won’t happen by chance: firms must set clear vision and objectives for the SFTR initiative outside of mere compliance, and should drive operating model change from the business rather than from compliance or technology.
Do you agree?
