T2S launch celebration – 2 July in Milan, Italy

The Rotonda della Besana – the Milan Children’s Museum (MUBA) – was the beautiful and historical venue chosen for the celebration event, entitled “Translating a shared vision into a winning story”. Mario Draghi, President of the ECB, gave the opening remarks, where he emphasised that “T2S is a demonstration of the market’s willingness to achieve deeper integration on a European scale”. Yves Mersch, Member of the Executive Board of the ECB, said that the “T2S Community transformed the shared vision of an integrated securities settlement landscape into a winning story”. In addition, Ignazio Visco, Governor of Banca d’Italia, welcomed the guests to Italy and commended the successful launch of the platform. José Viñals, Director of the Monetary and Capital Markets Department at the IMF, introduced a forward-looking panel discussion moderated by Gertrude Tumpel-Gugerell, former Member of the Executive Board of the ECB, about the path toward capital markets union in Europe. Xavier Rolet, CEO of London Stock Exchange Group, Werner Steinmüller, Head of Global Transaction Banking at Deutsche Bank, and Kay Swinburne, Member of the European Parliament, participated in the panel. To mark the launch, a new T2S video was presented. See more on how securities travel around Europe in a harmonised way.
