Full Service Custody

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.

The challenge

Settlement in T2S is harmonized and cross-border costs will be reduced. These benefits will help open opportunities into new markets. However, integral Custody services will remain at the local market level, such as; corporate actions, tax and regulatory compliance, which will require on-the-ground expertise. It will be essential to have a provider who can balance the advantages of the harmonized environment with the local expertise still required.

The solution

Our Full Service Custody offers centralized Cash and settlement services via a T2S regional Hub, combined with a distributed operating model that incorporates on the ground staff. We provide local market expertise and optional levels of asset protection.

Omnibus Account: Full Service capabilities, asset safety, safekeeping and regulatory reporting in the local market.

Segregated Account: Full Service capabilities, asset protection, able to identify and allocate assets efficiently in a crisis event.
