Account Operator Asset Servicing at Issuer CSD

T2S brings fundamental change to the post-trade securities settlement landscape in Europe. Taking advantage of the opportunities created by T2S will present significant benefits. One benefit of T2S will be harmonised settlement which will bring a standard process and settlement day for the Eurozone.

The challenge

How can you take advantage of the settlement harmonization with your own organization, but still gain the value added services from your agent for the un-harmonized functions?

The solution

Our Asset servicing only solution provides you with the ability to manage settlement in house versus your own account at an issuer CSD. We support this through our hosted connectivity service that allows us to provide a full asset servicing and tax solution that looks identical to that offered by a traditional Custodian. This allows you to fund cost efficiency, while benefiting from our local expertise.
