Euroclear Ireland – Delivering continuity of Irish securities settlement post Brexit
Register for our webinar - 5 March 2018, 11:00 (GMT), 12:00 (CET) - duration: 1 hour
As a global settlement infrastructure, the Euroclear group has provided settlement services for the Irish securities markets for the last 20 years. We remain committed to strengthening our partnership with Ireland by continuing to provide these services post-Brexit through the establishment (subject to a number of internal and external dependencies, including regulatory approvals) of a new Central Securities Depository (CSD) in Dublin.
In this webinar, we will present the main themes outlined in our recent white paper, ‘Euroclear Ireland – Delivering continuity of Irish securities settlement post-Brexit’.
- Paul Symons, Head of Government Relations (Euroclear SA/NV)
- Ian Dowglass, Head of Innovation and Business Transformation (Euroclear UK & Ireland)
- Christopher Twemlow, Chief Legal Officer (Euroclear UK & Ireland)

Delivering a new CSD for Ireland
For more than 20 years, we have provided integrated multi-currency settlement services for both Irish and UK corporate securities. Today, these services are provided by Euroclear UK & Ireland, a UK-based company with no physical presence in Ireland.
We recognise that the UK’s decision to leave the European Union (commonly referred to as ‘Brexit’) may make the current arrangements for Irish corporate securities settlement by Euroclear UK & Ireland untenable.
