Paving the way for international banks and global investors to seek diversification and yield in local markets globally. Our aim is to deliver the same efficient and robust service standards that apply in the more established markets.
We give you the confidence to invest in domestic securities by connecting you to local issuers in the most efficient manner possible.
We do this by ensuring you can operate within the same framework, and in the same format, as in the well-established markets that have traditionally attracted high levels of international investment.
We understand investors have concerns over market accessibility, liquidity, asset protection and settlement finality.
We also understand local market authorities have concerns about the quality of investors, AML/KYC practices of investors’ jurisdictions, hot money flow and impact on their currency.
This is why we partner with local market authorities. Together we design solutions that provide better standards of accessibility, liquidity, asset protection and settlement finality in line with developed markets.
This means you can make your investment decisions without having to make secondary judgments about the efficiency of local markets.
We call what we do ‘making a market Euroclearable'.
A capital market becomes Euroclearable when it establishes a settlement link with Euroclear, the international central securities depository (ICSD), and adopts the legal, regulatory and other market standards that provide the same ease of access, degree of asset protection and settlement finality that international investors would experience in any well-established market.
We have a leading presence across Europe. We operate six CSDs and one international central securities depository:
- The Netherlands
We currently provide access to the following markets:
Africa and Middle East
Asia / Pacific
