Roger Storm, CEO of Euroclear Sweden

Roger Storm, CEO Euroclear Sweden, summarizes the first half of 2021. 

I would like to take this opportunity to thank you and wish you an excellent summer.  

As the grip of the pandemic gradually eases with the vaccinations, we are preparing for a gradual return to hybrid-office working, market harmonisation efforts and continued digitalization of our services. I hope you have noted our launch of a joint study with market stakeholders on the future of Sweden’s securities markets in a European-harmonisation scenario, with the support of Oliver Wyman. Alongside this, we have also shared an important paper with the market on the first steps in the harmonisation process. We are committed to contribute everything we can to this important transformative work, and recognize our important underpinning role as well as the critical importance of availability, stability and integrity of our services.

The number of new issuers and the level of transaction volumes have been exceptional in the first half of 2021 and we are happy to welcome so many new clients to Euroclear Sweden.
We have continued to support our existing and new corporate clients with their general meetings, most of which were transformed into almost fully digital format. We are also excited about the recent announcement that Euroclear has agreed to acquire the leading global digital fund distribution platform MFEX, a firm which has roots in Sweden. 

All in all, we have been able to continue to deliver with the highest level of stability, and I am very proud and thankful for our employees and you for this. The changes coming during the fall, with many investors and international custodians switching providers, an important product launch, and a couple of exciting occasions to celebrate, promises the second half of this year to be equally busy. So stay tuned and take care!

Wishing you all a great summer 

Best regards,

Roger Storm
