The evolution of central securities depositaries in Europe : stable functions in a changing environment
[eng] Central Securities Depositories (CSD) play two roles in the national framework : securities ultimate custody and securities settlement (operating acting securities settlement systems -SSS). Now, the passage from a national space to a European domestic one, reveals overcapacities and interferences between the different actors (CSD, ICSD and global custodians) of this post-trade market. This article examines CSD’s current functions and the manner in which they operate on a broader space. We put special emphasis on the « custody/authentification » function on which market confidence lies. We also raise the question of what institution is the most efficient in the new domestic area. We conclude that, whatever the solution, a strong impetus of the European dimension is needed (through a « domestic » CSD or a European Regulator). JEL classification : F36, G2, G28
