Key Priorities:

  • Contribute to the European Commission’s Capital Markets Union project in the post trade space
  • Represent and support members in the process of developing the T2S system
  • Work with members and policymakers to implement the complex buy in rules CSD Regulation
  • Promote, monitor and verify the implementation of the Markets Standards for Corporate Actions
  • Actively support the results of the European Post Trade Forum (EPTF) report


The Central Securities Depositories Regulation (CSDR) is covered by AFME’s Post-Trade division and looks to increase the safety and efficiency of securities settlement.
