On track to an efficient cross-border securities settlement in Europe

In comparison to the United States securities settlement in Europe is far too expensive, especially due to the high costs of cross border transactions within Europe.

Target2-Securities is the technical platform decided on by the Eurosystem to reduce existing technical deficits: By a single platform risks and costs of cross border securities settlement shall be noticeably reduced. Furthermore an essential contribution to the European harmonisation of securities settlement shall be reached.

Because of the serious changes to the custody market we recommend to all market participants to deal early with Target2-Securities in order to recognize impacts on the own institute, trigger measures and be able to influence the concrete form of T2S.
