Navigating U.S. T+1 Settlement for Buy-Side firms

Navigating U.S. T+1 Settlement for Buy-Side firms

1 Nov 2023

The U.S. will transition to T+1 settlement for transactions in U.S. cash equities, corporate debt and unit investment trusts effective 28 May 2024. Shortening the settlement cycle aims to create more efficient markets that serve investors better and the potential benefits are tremendous. However, changes to operations, processes and systems are essential to operate in a T+1 structure – in addition to considering time zones differences for non-U.S. investors.

Join us for a thought-provoking session on navigating the challenges of transiting to T+1. Hear from the distinguished expert and panel of speakers on how technology will play an enabling role in helping buy-side firms meet the tight settlement deadline, the regional considerations that will impact buy-side firms and lessons learnt from previous accelerated cycles.

How does T+1 impact buy-side firms?
The countdown timer to T+1 implementation in the U.S. has set off. Buy-side firms trading in U.S. securities will have less than a year to get their systems, processes, and resources ready to operate in a T+1 world come 28 May 2024.

Aside from discussing how technology will play a key enabling role in helping firms meet the tight settlement deadline, this panel will also delve into the regional considerations that will impact buy-side firms and experiences learned from previous accelerated
settlement cycles.
