• Account operator asset servicing at investor CSD

Market infrastructure change, which fundamentally changes post-trade securities settlement processes, could present significant benefits. For example, the Target2-Securities platform harmonises settlement, thereby creating a standard process and settlement day for the Eurozone

Meeting such reform will require adapting existing account structures. One benefit of the interconnectivity of CSDs in T2S is the mobility of assets and collateral. This is an area of significant focus as clients look to meet the increased capital and collateral requirements from regulation.

The challenge

How can you take advantage of the harmonised benefits of T2S and be able place your assets, or those of your clients into the established tri-party programmes?

The solution

Our solution for T2S at the investor CSD combines our asset servicing solution with the collateral mobility of an investor CSD tri-party programme. This provides balance sheet relief and access to the right collateral, in the right market, at the right time.


Adopting Deutsche Bank’s account operator solution to T2S, our clients benefit from a range of significant advantages.
