Navigating the CSDR landscape

Earlier this year, a system of punitive measures for settlement delays was introduced as part of the European Union's Central Securities Depositories Regulation (CSDR). The following report, jointly published by Funds Europe and RBC Investor & Treasury Services, examines how CSDR has impacted the market.

Based on a survey of over 100 securities professionals on the buy side and sell side, the report also provides insights from Ben Pumfrett and Dean Rook of RBC Investor & Treasury Services. Key survey findings include:

  • “Lead time” was the most popular lesson learned from the CSDR implementation
  • Two-thirds of respondents expect CSDR to create differences between the EU and UK
  • Market participants are most likely to have begun or increased outsourcing of their "operations" functions as a result of CSDR
  • Half of respondents have increased their investments in internal systems as a result of CSDR

“CSDR requires participants to be willing and capable of implementing the required technology”
