FSA Announces Interim Short Sale Reporting Channel


On October 31, the UK Financial Services Authority (FSA) published on its short selling webpage forms for notification of net short positions in UK issuers required to be disclosed to the FSA under the EU Short Selling Regulation (EU236/2012). The FSA had previously stated that it was developing a web-based solution notification of disclosable net short positions in UK shares. It is not clear how soon this will be available. For the present, notifications are to be made to the FSA by email using the forms available from the FSA short selling webpage.
