Disclosures and questionnaires
Self-assessment and continuous performance measurement are standard practices applied by Euroclear to ensure the effective settlement and servicing of the assets entrusted to us by our clients. They also demonstrate a risk-managed approach towards the delivery of new operational services.
Disclosure Framework Reports
The questions answered in these reports originate from a detailed questionnaire on risks assessment and transparency, based on:
- the 24 recommendations published in April 2012 by the Committee on Payment and Settlement Systems (CPSS) and International Organisation of Securities Commissions (IOSCO)
- the methodology for Disclosure Framework and Self-Assessment published on 21 December 2012
The Association of Global Custodians questionnaire
The Association of Global Custodians (AGC) is a group of global banks that primarily seeks to address regulatory issues which are of common interest to global custody banks.
The AGC Questionnaire was conceived as the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) imposes obligations (Rule 17f-7) on US investment companies holding securities in foreign depositories. The companies are, inter alia, obliged to make a risk analysis of CSDs.
