EU requires improving the safety and risk management of securities settlement for investors

Luxembourg has setup an efficient framework to support EU and Non-EU financial Institutions to comply with the quarterly basis reporting obligation


EU regulation

Settlement across borders presents higher risks and costs for investors within one country. EU has adopted a regulation on central securities depositories (CSDR*) to harmonise rules. The main objective of the regulation is to increase the safety and efficiency of securities settlement and settlement infrastructures in the EU.

The article 9 of this regulation sets rules on how to report transactions settled outside a securities settlement system. This overview will allowing regulators improve safety and to manage risks.

Under Article 9 of CSDR, a settlement internaliser is required to report, to competent authorities of its place of establishment, on a quarterly basis, the aggregated volume and value of all securities transactions settled outside securities settlement systems.

ESMA's guideline on how to report internalised settlement under CSDR

Focus on Luxembourg

On 25 February 2019, the Commission de surveillance du secteur financier (CSSF) published the Circular 19/709 related to the CSDR requirement on the quarterly reporting of internalised settlement.

From July 2019, the banks and investment firms performing internalised settlements will be obliged to report to the CSSF.

The CSSF will transmit to ESMA the reporting information and any potential risk resulting from that settlement activity.

The first reports are due by 12 July 2019.

Fundsquare is appointed as the official channel by the CSSF.
