Are you ready to travel the road to T+1?

Time is short to comply with a shortened settlement cycle

On February 24th, 2022, the US Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) published in the Federal Register (Vol. 87, No.37) its official rule change proposal for a shortened US securities transaction settlement standard of T+1 from the existing T+2 cycle.

Conversion to T+1 will have significant impacts on the participants, processes, and platforms involved with pre/post trade lifecycle activities.

It is essential that firms do not underestimate the challenges that lie ahead of them to successfully transition to a T+1 settlement cycle.

A successful conversion program entails many components including executive support, dedicated budget, strong governance, accountable stakeholders, and a well-organized project management function.

  • Detailed planning is required encompassing deliverable timelines, milestones, development efforts, testing, and migration to remediate affected trade processing and asset servicing functions.
  • Internal and external constituents (including clients, vendors, third party service providers and regulators) all need coordinated engagement to ensure a synchronized transition from T+2 to T+1.
  • Documentation (new and amended), impact assessments and technology enhancements will all come into play concurrently, putting further strain on firms’ resources in addition to their day to day responsibilities.
