T2S doubles settlement volumes with wave 4 migration
6 February 2017 was the first operational day on T2S for the clients of six central securities depositories (CSDs) from Austria (OeKB CSD), Germany (Clearstream), Hungary (KELER), Luxembourg (LuxCSD), Slovakia (CDCP) and Slovenia (KDD). Following the successful migration over the weekend, the volume of securities transactions now being settled on the platform has almost doubled. This is the largest T2S migration wave so far, in terms of both the number of CSDs and the increase in settlement volumes.
18 CSDs, representing 16 markets, are now settling securities transactions on the pan-European platform. T2S is thus making a solid contribution to post-trade integration in Europe.
Post-trade harmonisation is a key objective of the T2S Community. It will enable T2S to realise its full potential to benefit the European market, in terms of increasing efficiency and establishing a level playing field.
