The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) has today updated its Questions and Answers (Q&As) on the Short-Selling Regulation (SSR).
The overall SSR Q&A revises a pre-existing answer regarding locate arrangements, further specifying the requirements for ‘easy-to-borrow and purchase’ lists.
The purpose of this Q&A is to promote common supervisory approaches and practices in the application of SSR. It aims at providing investors and other market participants with clarifications on the applicable requirements.
ESMA will periodically review these Q&A and update them where required.
