European capital markets are subject to significant harmonisation, including the capital markets union initiative. Euroclear Sweden, together with the rest of the Swedish market, are dedicated at harmonising the Swedish post-trade securities market to European standards.
Euroclear Sweden aims to present information related to Euroclear Sweden’s initiatives and proposals connected to harmonisation towards European standards. To facilitate the understanding of our initiatives, we also provide links and references to other information sources. Please note, however, that the information on this site is not a complete view on the topic.
In a report prepared by the Coordination Forum for Swedish Post-Trade Harmonisation in January 2021, a first set of activities of a harmonisation roadmap was identified, including reviews of the account model, the participant structure, the issuer agent model and corporate actions as well as settlement.
As Euroclear Sweden completes the reviews, we will publish our proposals and identified need for changes to business processes, and legislation here.
It is recommended to read all the documents as a joint proposal. Although described in separate documents, the areas of account structure, related functions and responsibilities of involved participants are highly linked and interdependent.
