Jeffrey Tessler, chief executive officer of Clearstream, says: “TARGET2-Securities will transform the post-trade landscape and as go-live approaches, T2S readiness figures very high on the agenda of many customers and prospects. We take the fact that customers continue to shift asset volumes to us as early support of our strategic plans. Our focus is therefore on executing our T2S strategy and on building and delivering the best value proposition for the emerging market landscape. At the same time, we continue to outline the T2S benefits to the market, some of which are not obvious – for example, in the area of capital and liquidity management.”
