Your way to us:

OeKB CSD uses T2S for Securities Settlement:

T2S is a European platform, which was developed by the German, French, Italian and Spanish central banks. It is operated by the Eurosystem, which is currently being used by over 20 European central securities depositories.

We use T2S as our settlement system which enables the harmonised settlement of securities transactions across Europe using central bank money. This eliminates former restraints in cross-border settlement and at the same time increases security and efficiency.

Your Cost Savings by Using T2S for Settlement:

We let our securities account holders benefit directly from the advantages of securities settlement in T2S: It allows us to keep the costs of securities settlement low, since it only involves a single system.

Our securities account holders also benefit from T2S for securities account administration.
