Welcome to ISITC Europe
We support our members by promoting operational efficiency in the capital markets arena through a series of working groups, educational activities, as well as hosting conferences and seminars.
ISITC Europe’s Mission is to promote operational efficiency in the global financial industry through education, design, standardisation and recommendation.
ISITC Europe is a voluntary, totally inclusive not for profit group of interested members from the financial industry. Members comprise Investment Managers, Custodian Banks, Broker/Dealers, Software-Data Network communication vendors (technology vendors), Industry Service providers, Consultancies, Depositories and Individuals.
By spanning all parties to a transaction, ISITC Europe undertakes to educate industry participants to reduce operational risk and increase operational efficiency, implement industry-agreed standards across all processing aspects of a transaction, and recommend / endorse industry initiatives and codes of conduct supporting end-to-end Straight-Through Processing (STP).
Content for education is canvassed from leading exponents on subjects in the Capital Markets industry and collated for presentation or discussion in the allotted ISITC Europe Working Group.
Full membership of ISITC Europe and access to the working group areas, requires a paid subscription. Becoming a member of ISITC Europe will allow you to join and access the online member directory, send private messages, share documents and access the working group forums.
MIFID II and MIFIR
On 20th October 2011, the European Commission published two proposals: the revised Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID II), along with Markets in Financial Investments Regulation (MiFIR). Both the Directive and Regulation aim to establish a safer and more transparent financial system by enhancing regulatory requirements, market transparency and investor protection.
The trade association has published a paper titled MiFID II/MIFIR Demystified in anticipation of the upcoming initiative.
ISITC Europe currently supports the following working groups on behalf of its members.
Each Working Group is supported by a sponsoring ISITC Europe Leadership Group Executive and Working Group Chair.
Comprised of leading executives, the International Securities Association for Institutional Trade Communication (ISITC) brings together broker/dealers, custodians, investment managers, vendors/utilities and other industry professionals to develop standards that are designed to enhance efficiencies in trade processing and related communications. Through collaboration, ISITC’s volunteer members reduce inefficiencies, lower risk and build shareholder value while developing and promoting the global securities industry. Visit ISITC U.S.
