In February, BNP Paribas Securities Services (BP2S) organised a conference in Brussels on the future of Europe’s financial markets infrastructure. BP2S brought together experts from European institutions and the largest players in securities services in Europe.
The objective: define a common position vis-à-vis market authorities on changes to European regulations for the clearing and settlement of securities. Participants requested that BP2S hold the conference henceforth on an annual basis. This forum reinforces the position of BP2S as an industry leader in the ‘post-trade’ domain. BP2S has become a reference for the European Commission and the European Central Bank, which increasingly seek its advice and expertise on issues relating to changes in the securities markets.
