    Why? T2S and harmonisation

    One transaction

    many post trade


    high cost of cross-border


  • 15

    3 reasons

    T2S community asks strongly for this: Harmonisation is the added value of the T2S project.

    Harmonisation supports the Lean T2S system specification. Keeps budget and time under control

    Part of the EU single market agenda (financial integration)

  • Outline

    The main benefits expected from T2S The importance of post-trading harmonization Preparation activities for the go-live The role of Monte Titoli, the banks and Banca d’Italia T2S and the demand for collateral


  • 1. The main benefits expected from T2S (1)

    T2S will guarantee a MORE EFFICIENT AND SAFER securities settlement system in Europe

    ▪ REDUCTION OF SETTLEMENT FEES ▫ reduction of average settlement transaction fee (economies of scale) ▫ levelling of cross-border and domestic settlement transactions fees (settlement through the same platform) ▫ reduction of costs for CSDs’ customers (promoting competition among CSD and between CSD and global custodians)


  • 1. The main benefits expected from T2S (2)

    STREAMLINING of technical aspects and procedures ▫ settlement of transactions on a single platform both for cash and securities ▫ reduction of the interfacing with different settlement systems ▫ possibility to centralize securities management from a single account ▫ reduction of collateral demand


  • 2. The importance of post-trading harmonization

    Importance of POST-TRADING HARMONIZATION activities to: ▫ eliminate local markets SEGMENTATION ▫ optimize T2S BENEFITS for the operators ▫ promote INTEGRATION of financial markets

    HARMONIZATION required: ▫ definition of EUROPEAN “STANDARDS”; work done by market operators coordinated by the Eurosystem ▫ REMOVAL OF NATIONAL SPECIFITIES monitored by T2S National User Groups

    Involvement of Italian financial market in the “STANDARD” DEFINITION at European level; important contribution for the definition of the PORTFOLIO TRANSFER STANDARD


  • 26

    3. Testing activities

    MARCH – DEC 2014 Eurosystem Acceptance Testing (EAT) for core and non-core functions completed

    JULY – SEPT 2014 Pilot testing MT and BdI successfully completed

    FROM OCT 2014 User Testing for CSDs and NCBs, involving 24 CSDs and 19 NCBs; it will carry on until the last migration Wave (Feb17) MID JANUARY 2015 Release of software for production phase

    MID FEBRUARY 2015 Connectivity test for DCPs

    MARCH 2015 Community test for the first wave financial markets will start

    JUNE 2015 GO LIVE for Italy and the other countries in the first migration wave

  • 4. Training activities

    Banca d’Italia and Monte Titoli have been and remain deeply involved in training activities BOTH JOINTLY AND SEPARATELY

    TRAINING ACTIVITIES carried out during T2S National User Group meetings and specific sessions

    CONTINUOS BILATERAL ADVICE to banks on demand



  • 5. Monitoring activities – the role of the IT NUG On the REMOVAL OF NATIONAL SPECIFITIES in line with the harmonization process to European best practices: the NUG confirmed that the Italian market will be harmonized for the launch of T2S In Italy main efforts to move towards european standards focussed on: ▫ Matching standards ▫ Corporate actions on stocks ▫ Corporate actions on flows (with the launch of T2S) ▫ FoP transactions (with the launch of T2S) ▫ T+2 (live from 6 Oct 14) On the READINESS of the Italian financial market place: ▪ Banca d’Italia and Monte Titoli deeply involved in supporting migration in T2S ▪ Readiness checked during meetings and with specific questionnaires: ▫ first questionnaire to all operators that have an account in TARGET2 and/or Monte Titoli ▫ quarterly questionnaire to banks that will open an account in T2S


  • 6. Monte Titoli’s choice

    COSTS AND BENEFITS of being in the FIRST MIGRATION WAVE costs to be the first to test and to implement new procedures benefits to be the first to offer the more efficient and safer settlement system T2S and the new cross-border triparty services in the Eurosystem will INCREASE COMPETITION among CSDs and between CSDs and global custodians. Great importance to value added services offered by CSDs such as CUSTODY SERVICES and COLLATERAL MANAGEMENT

    CSDs competitive position will largely depend on their offer of adequate COLLATERAL MANAGEMENT SERVICES


  • 7. The opportunities for banks


    Higher costs of direct connection should be balanced by higher revenues coming from a larger range of services offered to customers

    Pan-European banks should exploit the benefits of having a SINGLE INTERFACE for the securities settlement in the euro area with possible CENTRALIZATION of information and holdings of securities

    All banks should take the opportunity offered by T2S to ENHANCE THEIR COLLATERAL MANAGEMENT SYSTEM


  • 31

    37 operators are to open both CASH AND SECURITIES accounts in T2S ▫ 11 directly connected to T2S ▫ 26 indirectly connected through TARGET2 services

    9 operators will open ONLY SECURITIES accounts (one or more); the cash leg will be settled through a third party

    All remaining banks will have NO DIRECT CONNECTION to T2S: securities settlement through third party services

    8. Italian banks’ choice

  • 32

    As Central Bank, Banca d’Italia will perform different operational roles: 1. BANK OF BANKS: responsible for the Dedicated Cash Accounts (DCAs) opened by Italian commercial banks in T2S and used to settle the cash leg of securities transactions; 2. T2 SYSTEM OWNER: responsible for the cash accounts opened by commercial banks in TARGET2, which will be used to transfer liquidity from and to T2S;

    9. Banca d’Italia’s role in T2S (1)

  • 33

    3. COLLATERAL MANAGER: responsible for the collateral pledged by banks for credit operations with the Banca d’Italia. It will also submit the list of ELIGIBLE ASSETS and their valuation coefficients to T2S for the auto-collateralisation facility. During the migration period, the Banca d’Italia will offer a specific service to allow euro area commercial banks to use cross-border auto-collateralisation in Monte Titoli even if their financial community has not yet migrated to T2S. 4. SETTLEMENT AGENT for its own securities transactions in the market (placement, exchange and repurchase of Government bonds on behalf of the Italian Ministry of Economics; custody of Government bonds (coupon payments, redemptions); Monetary policy Outright transactions; Investment of official reserves for the Banca d’Italia and for the ECB; Securities lending).

    9. Banca d’Italia’s role in T2S (2)

  • 34


    Need to INCREASE AVAILABILITY AND MOBILITY OF COLLATERAL overcoming fragmentation across desks, jurisdictions and custodians


    T2S will centralize all participants’ securities and cash accounts on one SINGLE PLATFORM

    10. T2S and the demand for collateral

  • 35

    11. Actions for a more efficient collateral use

    EUROSYSTEM: removal of repatriation requirement in the CCBM, introduction of cross-border triparty services, realization of T2S and harmonization of post-trading activities

    BANKS: rearrangement of treasury and back-office procedures

    CSDs: maximize opportunities stemming from T2S and development of efficient collateral management services (ie triparty) that should ▫ linked to different markets and CCP ▫ ..attract participation from a diversified range of operators ▫ interoperable with services offered by other CSD

    Main Achievements 22 Jun 15

    Page 38 London Stock Exchange Group

  • T2S Status reported to ECB

    London Stock Exchange Group Page 39

    Risk Status • Major point of attention is represented by the non-regression testing as a consequence of the delayed defects resolution timeline, in particular for those emerging in T2S which are affecting applications in Monte Titoli

    • The limited time available to complete the testing phase, could prevent Monte Titoli systems to get a sufficient stability for starting of the Community Testing

    • Moreover with the start of Community Testing it is likely that further defects will be raised by Participants with the obvious impact on planning and the additional effort to be managed

    Project Status • Most of the activities for T2S go-live are on-track • The ECB late fixing of defects (only partially completed in mid January) has prevented the

    execution of all test cases planned in the Bilateral Testing phase • This is causing an overlapping of part of the Bilateral Testing phase with the Multilateral one,

    requiring an additional effort to be managed with additional resources and complexity in planning A


    After 7 months of testing, we do not see any show stopper Attention is high and we continue to manage risks carefully and update our clients

  • On-going activities

    London Stock Exchange Group Page 40
