SEC amends rules to enable T+2

29 September 2016  |  1977 views  |  0 Source: SEC

The Securities and Exchange Commission today voted to propose a rule amendment to shorten the standard settlement cycle for most broker-dealer securities transactions from three business days after the trade date (T+3) to two business days after the trade date (T+2).

The proposed amendment is designed to reduce the risks that arise from the value and number of unsettled securities transactions prior to the completion of settlement, including credit, market, and liquidity risk directly faced by U.S. market participants.

“Today’s proposal to shorten the standard settlement cycle is an important step in the SEC’s ongoing efforts to enhance the resilience and efficiency of the U.S. clearance and settlement system,” said SEC Chair Mary Jo White. “The benefits of a shortened settlement cycle should extend to all investors, not just those directly involved in the trading, clearing and settling of securities transactions.”

The proposal amends Rule 15c6-1(a) of the Exchange Act of 1934.

The public comment period will remain open for 60 days following publication of the proposing release in the Federal Register.
