This session will first discuss the added value that can be expected from a Consolidated Tape in the EU, the use cases identified and what should be its main characteristics. The panel will also assess the conditions and challenges for a Consolidated Tape to be viable in the EU in terms of pricing, business and governance model, and how these may be addressed.
Points of discussion
- What is the expected added value of a Consolidated Tape in the EU? What are the main use cases identified? What should be its scope and main characteristics for it to have sufficient added value?
- How can the emergence of a viable Consolidated Tape project be incentivised in the EU? What should be its main characteristics in terms of pricing and business model? Could there be several CTs in the EU or is there a natural monopoly? What should be the priorities for the implementation of an EU CT?
