Securitisation Repositories

A Securitisation Repository (SR) is a legal entity that centrally collects and maintains the records of securitisations. Read more on how to apply.

Originators, sponsors or securitisation special purpose entities (SSPEs) must report their public securitisations within the scope of the UK Securitisation Regulation to a UK securitisation repository (SR) registered by us.  

Firms registered as UK SRs are included on the Financial Services Register.

Approach to Supervision  

In line with the FCA's Approach to Supervision, we supervise SRs as members of a portfolio of firms that share a common business model alongside Trade Repositories (TRs). 

In September 2022, we issued the first portfolio letter  to all SRs in our portfolio setting out what we expect them to do to minimise risks to consumers, market integrity or competition from failures to meet regulatory requirements
