T2/T2S Consolidation:
the perfect opportunity to take your liquidity management to the next level  


The Eurosystem Consolidation project, which is set to unify and revolutionize central settlement systems for cash, securities and collateral, represents a major change for the European Financial Industry. The ambitious project will enable extended hours of settlement and deliver increased efficiencies, supporting an ever more integrated financial market infrastructure in Europe and guaranteeing a higher level of security and improved usability.

The new system will go live in November 2021 with a big-bang migration and any participant not ready by this date will be excluded from central bank monetary operations, unable to pay or be paid in CB money or perform ancillary system settlements.

With its major impact on the bank and multi-annual capital budget, the Consolidation project presents a clear opportunity for those who haven’t yet worked on adopting ISO20022, automating tasks, integrating information, scaling up their applications in real-time and forecasting through adaptive intelligence. It is a huge opportunity for banks to optimize their liquidity management.
