Kashyap Kapasi, director of Strategic Solutions, Investment Services at Fiserv, considers how a centralized Target2-Securities (T2S) settlement process will positively effect the global securities industry.

The migration to Target2-Securities (T2S), the emerging securities settlement platform for the Eurosystem, is set to debut in June 2015 and aims to automate and standardize the settlement process throughout Europe. At the present time, existing cross-border fees are viewed as prohibitive to greater financial integration and the lack of standardized procedure creates risk for banks and asset managers. T2S is widely seen as a fundamental change in the European trading landscape and is expected to operate in a similar way to the US-based Depository Trust and Clearing Corporation (DTCC).
