On 12 April 2021, the Financial Stability Board (FSB) issued FAQs to promote a common approach on the national implementation of the SFT Data Standards.
In November 2015 the FSB developed the data standards and processes for collecting and aggregating global data on securities financing transactions (SFTs) (the SFT Data Standards). These built on the policy recommendations to address financial stability risks in SFTs published in August 2013.
The FAQs are based on practical issues raised by FSB member jurisdictions in their implementation of the SFT Data Standards. As market practices evolve the FAQs will be updated.
