The Advisory Group on Market Infrastructures for Securities and Collateral
(AMI-SeCo) was set up by the Eurosystem to facilitate an active dialogue with market participants and financial market infrastructures, with a view to fostering financial market integration in the field of securities and collateral management, and to providing advice on market infrastructures managed by the Eurosystem and related projects, in particular TARGET2-Securities (T2S). The ICMA ERCC is represented in the AMI-SeCo through Nicholas Hamilton, Co-Chair of the ERCC Operations Group, and actively contributes to the work of the group.
The AMI-SeCo has been established in 2017 as a result of the latest restructuring of the Eurosystem’s market infrastructure related advisory bodies, taking over the responsibilities of the COGESI
and the T2S Advisory Group
Alongside AMI-SeCo, a second advisory group, AMI-Pay
, has been set up to focus on questions related to payments infrastructure.
