This session will first discuss the opportunities and challenges associated with the implementation of a European post-trade consolidated tape for the development of EU securities markets and whether the guidance provided by ESMA provides an appropriate way forward for its implementation.

The panel will also evaluate the potential impact for investors and issuers that is expected from the implementation of a European Single Access Point for EU corporate information, the conditions of success of this initiative and the challenges that need overcoming.

Points of discussion

  1. Consolidated tape (CT): What are the potential benefits and limitations of a post-trade CT for securities instruments? What are the main challenges and conditions of success for implementing it? What should be its scope and characteristics?
  2. European Single Access Point (ESAP): What impact is expected from the ESAP recommended in the new CMU action plan for investors and issuers? What are the key priorities in the ESAP project and the main challenges to overcome? Is the workplan proposed by the CMU HLF report the right way forward for implementing it?
