ICMA ERCC responds to AMI-SeCo survey on remaining post-trade barriers in Europe
31 January 2024 The ERCC has submitted a response to an ECB survey on remaining post-trade-barriers in Europe which was launched among members of the ECB’s Advisory Group for Market Infrastructures for Securities and Collateral (AMI-SeCO). The ERCC is represented on the AMI-SeCo through ERCC Ops co-chair Nicholas Hamilton (JP Morgan). Overall, ICMA and the ERCC welcome the renewed focus on post-trade barriers which picks up many years of discussion initiated in the early 2000s by the Giovannini reports. As the ERCC response discusses, despite some good progress over the past years, there continue to be important obstacles in place to a more integrated and efficient post-trade environment in the EU which should be tackled as a priority.
