About this event

Please note: due to the current UK Government advise, we are running the SFTR course remotely over WebEx until further notice. Please get in touch if you have any questions.

We have introduced an exam for the SFTR Transaction Reporting Foundation course to give you the opportunity to test your proficieny in the subject matter.  Please see below for exam dates in line with the remaining courses this year.

The new SFTR Transaction Reporting Foundation course (CPD - certified and endorsed by CISI) will provide operations and compliance staff with a thorough grounding in the regulatory transaction reporting requirements. As well as detailing the regulatory reporting data standards, the course explains the systems and controls ESMA expects firms to have over transaction reporting.  All our courses are delivered by experts in the regulatory field.

There are various course dates available throughout 2021.

Please note that we are currently unable to run exams due to our office being closed as a result of the Covid-19 lockdown restrictions.
