STP/T+1: The European challenge - What are the implications of the U.S. move to T+1 settlement for European institutions?




In this paper, we have highlighted the potential implications of a move in the U.S. to T+1 on European financial institutions. We explain that while many European institutions feel that they are sheltered from this move, those that undertake trading activities in the U.S. will find that they need to make the necessary investments to meet this objective if they are to continue servicing their clients effectively. Those that fail to prepare for T+1 do so at their own peril. In addition to addressing how European institutions will be impacted, this paper also provides some prescriptive recommendations on what steps might be necessary to meet this important challenge.
