A roadmap for integrated, safe and efficient post-trade services in Europe

AFME members were invited to join a Members’ Briefing Call on Wednesday 24 May at 14.00 (GMT)/ 15:00 (CET) to discuss the latest findings from the European Post Trade Forum (EPTF) report which takes into account achievements of the past five years as well as unresolved and new issues, and the regulatory changes that will shape the post-trade function of the future.

The European Post Trade landscape has improved significantly in the past decade but challenges remain in removing outstanding barriers to safe and efficient post-trade in Europe. The EPTF, set up by the European Commission in early 2016 to support it in the CMU project, provides the basis for a successful and targeted cooperation between industry and public authorities. Its objective is to review the developments in post-trading in order to promote more efficient and resilient markets in the European Union.

On the call, Werner Frey, Managing Director for Post Trade at AFME and Stephen Burton, Managing Director, Post Trade, AFME discussed the latest findings, highlighting the current challenges and implications for industry.
