Fabian Klar from REGIS-TR will explain their plans, and compare SFTR to other reporting regulations. Simon Davies will paint a picture of what an SFTR compliance plan should look like, and how long you need to be ready. Mark Steadman will update us on the Deriv/SERV plans and how SFTR will impact other streams of reporting.
