T2/T2S Consolidation:
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 2022. 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.


See below the updated milestones for the Consolidation Roadmap.

Consolidation Roadmap

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.

TAS Group has been helping Commercial and Central Banks in the Eurosystem harmonization process for over 20 years, starting with the domestic RTGS migrations towards TARGET and gradually expanding into T2, T2S and Collateral management infrastructures at ECB level.

Since 2019, with our partners KPMG Advisory Services Italy and Accenture we have been assisting banks in facing the T2/T2S Consolidation migration, a challenging multi-year project mandated by the Eurosystem. Together, we share expertise and insights to achieve significant improvements in the complex new scenario.

Over 40 Commercial Banks and 1 Central Bank have already adopted our solutions to prepare for the Consolidation migration. We are now ready to put our experience and expertise to work for you.
