Agreement on transparency rules for securities lending and repurchase transactions

On 29 July 2015, the Permanent Representatives Committee on behalf of the Council of the European Union approved an agreement in order to enhance the transparency of securities lending and repurchase transactions.

The proposed regulation shall increase financial market´s stability by ensuring that information concerning so-called securities financing transactions shall be notified in an efficient manner to the trade repository and to investors in undertakings for collective investments. The increased transparency is meant to avoid that banks and other financial intermediaries try to circumvent the relevant rules by relocating their activities into the less regulated shadow banking system.
