The benefits of Euroclear’s ICSD model solution for investors

Enjoy enhanced trading, liquidity, reduced settlement fails and less risk. With holdings of ETFs concentrated in Euroclear Bank, these instruments can more easily be used as a financing tool, both for securities lending and collateral management.

  • Global access: Access ETFs in multiple markets - worldwide​.
  • Centralisation of the liquidity: With less fragmentation, the ICSD model decreases the number of complex realignments between CSDs when trading between different stock exchanges. The model also reduces costs and simplifies inventory management. As a consequence, the risk of settlement failure is dramatically brought down and the number of costly buy-ins to cover settlement fails and related CSDR penalties dropped. This results in more competitive spreads.​
  • Multi-currency settlement: Euroclear’s ICSD model gives you access to settlement in all our eligible currencies​
  • Long settlement window: Euroclear’s settlement window is open throughout Asian, European and US trading hours. ​
  • One single ISIN per ETF: Regardless of market or currency, the ETF will be identified by one single ISIN.​
  • All OTC transactions can also settle in Euroclear Bank. 

In addition to the ICSD model – Euroclear Bank also offers access to ETFs on domestic markets.
