Overview of ISITC Europe

ISITC Europe was formed in 1992 in London. The industry association was originally comprised of Investment Managers and Custodians who collaborated to design electronic message standards which allowed the exchange of relevant details and improve efficiency and productivity.

Once the standards were designed and implemented by the standards bodies ISO and SWIFT, ISITC Europe delivered guidelines on message usage and process optimisation leading to best practice for securities processing.

Core membership

ISITC now counts Brokers, Vendors, Consultancies, Market infrastructures as well as Custodians and Investment Management firms as its core membership demograph as complementary initiatives such as IUG (Industry User Group) and RDUG (Reference Data User Group) merged with ISITC Europe and widened the scope to include ETC (Electronic Trade Confirmation) and Data elements to the agenda.
