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 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.
