Clearing and settlement under the microscope

Source: The European Commission

The European Commission reports on securities trading, clearing and settlement arrangements for bonds and equities in the 25 EU countries.

In a first section the report describes the main activities in the sector and identifies some key players. It also comments on some trends at the pan-European level. In the second section it presents the organised trading, clearing and settlement arrangements for cash equities and bonds in each of the EU 25 countries and documents the vertical arrangements between trading, clearing and settlement in each case.

On the basis of this report the Commission will work closely with national competition and regulatory authorities to ensure that possible barriers to cross-border competition are monitored and if necessary investigated.
