As an open Financial Market Infrastructure (FMI), we innovate actively by developing services in close collaboration with clients. We have also embarked on a number of partnerships with market infrastructure and pioneering FinTech startups aimed at better ways of working to increase efficiency and reduce cost and risk.
Today, under increasingly heavy regulatory and compliance roadmaps, we are challenged as to how to bring the advantages of new technology into a highly-regulated landscape whilst maintaining our systemically important FMI role as the reliable and trusted business partner.
Collaboration is key.
FinTech in particular offers significant opportunities to increase efficiencies through greater collaboration and innovation, while unlocking mutual cost-savings.

Innovate to bring safety, efficiency and connections to financial markets for sustainable economic growth
In the Euroclear Hackathon 2022, our employees across divisions, backgrounds and locations came together to innovate and co-create.
This year, we also included a Euroclear Hackathon 'social challenge'. With almost 40 people in six teams, we collaborated to create innovative solutions to help refugees worldwide.
Collaborating with Euroclear means:
- for early stage FinTechs, rapid testing your product market fit through discussions with our clients and organisation of market proof-of-values.
- for later stage FinTechs, boost your go-to-market through the trusted client base of more than 2,000 financial institutions across the globe.
- obtaining access to deep expertise in the capital markets across different fields including business, legal, regulatory and IT.
- flexibility in the type of collaboration offered - be it through commercial relationship or different types of equity investment.
