This report sets the stage by giving an overview of STP: what it means, where various types of industry participants stand in their deployment of STP systems, and what we can expect to see in coming months and years. This report is intended to provide a broad overview of STP throughout the US securities industry.
"While STP has become a fixation in the securities industry, there is a need to clearly delineate what it means, how market participants are approaching this area" states Octavio Marenzi, author of the report. "This is particularly true in light of the billions of dollars that will have to be spent to make STP and T+1 a reality in the coming years. Large broker/dealers will have to spend in excess of US$300 mn each over the coming years to prepare themselves."
This report shows how market participants, including the buy side, sell side, custodians, exchanges and depositories are reacting, and assesses their overall state of readiness. The report goes on to discuss the various approaches to achieving STP, the challenges ahead, as well as the level of spending and expected returns from STP.
