CSDR Event 13 Feb 2020

Jan 31, 2020

This session is targeted at colleagues who have responsibility for CSDR and/or the operational implementation of this regulation. Subsequent sessions will cater for other roles that will be impacted.

While there is still additional clarity required on specific aspects of CSDR and how this will impact operational processes, the intention here is to rationalize the information already in the public domain and ensure member firms are aware of what they should expect.

The aim of this session is to provide attendees with a more detailed understanding of the process flows and lifecycle events which firms will be required to manage under CSDR.

Output from this session will identify common themes/areas of interests and enable those participating to shape the relevant sessions that will be required throughout 2020 to ensure our community are ready for implementing the regulation and ensuring that + day 1 activities are actively reviewed and any additional supporting material/resources are created.


16:00 – Registration and Networking

Session commences 16:15 with our panel of experts from Goldman Sachs, Citi, BNP Paribas and Access Fintech (see bios below):

  • Outlining what's been discussed to date - existing Working Groups output reviewed.

  • SO SIO members can agree the common themes/topics we want to take forward as part of the SIO 2020 programme
