A 'securities financing transaction' (SFT) is a transaction, such as a repurchase agreement, under which securities are used as collateral for a cash transaction.

The SFT Regulation is a European Union initiative to improve the understanding of the scope and depth of the markets in which securities are traded as collateral.

SFT market participants are obliged under the Regulation to report their transactions to a trade repository.
