How You Will Benefit

Your Trusted Partner for T2S Services

T2S was a major development in the history of European securities settlement and has brought with it a number of benefits:

  • Makes it easier for investors to buy securities across EU countries
  • Pooled collateral and liquidity so banks can quickly move funds to wherever they are needed
  • Reduced settlement risk by using central bank money for transactions

Our T2S investor CSD links enable our clients to settle the relevant T2S eligible ISINs directly at T2S.
