Distributed ledger technologies and financial market integration in Europe

How could distributed ledger technologies (DLTs) impact the integration of financial markets in Europe? Find out by reading the report of the Advisory Group on Market Infrastructures for Securities and Collateral. The report focuses in particular on post-trading services in the context of T2S.

The report considers the application of DLTs in areas such as settlement finality, cyber security and reporting. It adds to the ongoing discussion on how to harness such new technologies for better integrated EU financial markets.

DLTs are tools for recording information on holdings of money or financial assets across a network of computers. Some say that ‎they have the potential to completely change the way financial markets work.
