As part of the partnership, the transformation program will ensure easier cross-border settlements for investors in Finnish securities,  and attract investment and access to capital for issuers in the region.

TCS has deployed its BaNCS platform for market infrastructure, integrating Euroclear Finland’s core platform with the European Central Bank’s TARGET2-Securities or T2S platform.

With longer trading hours, banks will be able to support transactions across all 24 countries within the T2S ecosystem with a centralised cash account, simplifying collateral management and improving liquidity.

Vivekanand Ramgopal, President, BFSI Products and Platforms, TCS, said, “Euroclear Finland’s digital transformation offers a roadmap for other CSDs in their journey to become future-ready. This successful digital transformation sets a precedent in Europe…establishes (TCS BaNCS) as a leader in the European post-trade landscape.”
