Adopting ISO 20022: what you need to know
Achieving automation and offering services based on ISO standards are key goals for securities market infrastructures. As a central securities depository (CSD), you might have changed your transaction processing methods due to political or regional initiatives, or you might want to increase your global interoperability. Adopting ISO 20022 can help.
There are many considerations, including the lifecycle of a migration project and the logistics of moving an entire community. Drawing on industry best practice helps overcome fragmentation in the market, and manage co-existence with ISO 15022 standards.
Before you start, you need a secure, reliable network to guarantee safe and resilient transaction processing, communication, training and support will also be paramount as you support community members during the transition.
