Quick Find:

The “CESAME Group” (the European Commission’s Clearing and Settlement Advisory and Monitoring Expert Group) was set up in July 2004 with the aim of advising and assisting the Commission in the integration of EU securities clearing and settlement systems.

When in June 2008, the mandate of the CESAME Group expired, the “CESAME 2” Group was set up to carry the momentum built by CESAME in order to achieve the goal of a barrier-free Single European Market for clearing and settlement of securities transactions.
