Reacrchitecting the post-trade landscape
Growth is becoming less easy to find. By working together, we can find new ways of solving problems – new and old.
Below you’ll find more information about how we are working with market participants – including fintech providers, regulators and banks – to develop solutions that eliminate critical inefficiencies and reduce costs and risks.
The financial markets are seeking to understand the potential of blockchain, how to utilise the technology and lays out the path for its adoption.
Fundtech - Can blockchain bring more certainty to investors?
Revolution in the fund industry does exist. Automation via new technologies, including blockchain, can remove the most difficult and costly parts of the process – checking and reconciliation. Achieving higher levels of STP means investors who prefer to invest directly in equities and bonds for cost reasons could in future find it cheaper and easier to hold funds in their portfolios.

Time for a 'reset' in bank thinking

Building tomorrow's banks today
Banks’ back office costs are out of line with today’s revenues. In tackling the issue, banks need to look at new ways of solving some of the industry’s oldest problems says Angus Scott, Euroclear’s Head of Product Strategy and Innovation.
Industry harmonisation and liberalisation
There is a global shift to harmonisation of trading and settlement practices as countries and firms look to allow easier international investors access to local markets. These are worthwhile goals, but the interests of an individual country come first.
How do you align harmonisation and liberalisation with regulatory supervision? Only by respecting differing agendas in different countries and regions, says Jo Van de Velde, Global Head of Product Management, Euroclear.
Tackling the final frontier of back office automation
It is time for banks to rise to the challenge and deal with the one glaring gap in their back-office STP processes: claims management. Euroclear's Angus Scott explains.
