Celent Securities & Investments in London: What the European Buy Side and Sell Side Need to Know About the Evolving Role of Custodians

28 January 2011
London,United Kingdom

The custody market has seen some crucial changes since the financial crisis. In addition, the Target 2 Securities implementation could decrease the value of the European post-trade business by fostering large institutions to self-clear, and could simultaneously increase the level of competition among the post-trade services providers (CCPs, CSDs, custodians and sub-custodians). Custodians are reviewing their gamut of services and expanding their offerings along the trading value chain, with a clear move towards provision of front- or middle-office services.

This event provided insights on the changes that are impacting the custodial industry, how custodians are adjusting, the likely winners from these developments, and what custodians customers can expect as a result.

Guest Speakers Included:

• David Booth, Head of Network Management and Equity Settlements, Nomura
• Stephen Brown, Senior Vice President, Regional Head- Europe, Middle East, & Africa, Northern Trust
• Alan Cameron, Head of Client Segment, Broker Dealers, & Investment Banks, BNP Paribas Securities Services
