Data Challenges

A T+1 Forum Event – Data Challenges

Wednesday 29th November 2023



Background Information

The move to T+1 settlement in North America during 2024 and the intention indicated by the UK Accelerated Settlement Taskforce to follow suit in the UK create many business, technology and process including data challenges, which need to be fully explored. The ISITC Europe T+1 Forum series of roundtable discussions are designed to facilitate an in-depth, cross-industry understanding of those challenges and what solutions can be found for the short, medium and long term.

Each roundtable will be conducted under the Chatham House Rule, where no individuals or companies will be named, to facilitate a free and frank exchange of views. Sessions will be moderated by a member of the ISITC Europe T+1 research team and scribed by forum secretariat EY, to enable the production of a post session report, (complying with the Chatham House rule).

  • Our goal is to increase industry knowledge and understanding by defining the problems from both buy and sell side perspectives.
  • To discuss potential solutions i.e., amending business/operational processes, adapting existing technology or implementing new technology.
  • To assist with strategic planning and development.
  • To find a successful path to T+1 settlement implementation for everyone.

Moderator: Gary Wright, Director, ISITC Europe

Kindly hosted by EY

Time: 12:15 – 12:45 Lunch  – 12:45 Welcome/Opening Address  followed by roundtable discussion – 14:15 Close

Location: EY, 25 Churchill Place, Canary Wharf, London, E14 5EY

This is the fourth in a series of our T+1 Forum roundtable discussions examining the impact of accelerated settlement.

Data quality and data access on an industry-wide scale have always been a great problem and with a shorter settlement cycle these challenges will magnified. The aim will be understand and define the problems across the transaction chain and discuss possible solutions. Likely areas of discussion will include:

  • Should LEIs or other identity standards become mandatory?
  • Should regulators insist that all players in the settlement chain use electronic standard settlement instructions (SSIs)?
  • How can we increase the overall quality of data in the markets?
  • What is the impact on Consumer Duty?
  • What is the role of data management systems in the context of the need for real-time access to data?
    • Can we build this from existing data management systems?
