• Account operator asset servicing at issuer CSD

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

The challenge

How can you take advantage of the settlement harmonisation with your own organisation, but still gain the value added services from your sub-custodian agent for the un-harmonised functions?

The Deutsche Bank advantage

Our asset servicing only solution provides you with the ability to manage settlement in house versus your own account at an issuer CSD. We support this through our hosted connectivity service that allows us to provide a full asset servicing and tax solution that looks identical to that offered by a traditional Custodian. This allows you to fund cost efficiency, while benefiting from our local expertise.


Adopting Deutsche Bank’s account operator solution to market infrastructure and regulatory change, our clients benefit from a range of significant advantages.
