SEC calls for T+2 trade settlement

SIFMA SmartBrief | Sep 29, 2016

The Securities and Exchange Commission proposed shortening the period for the settlement of securities trades by broker-dealers from three days to two, commonly referred to as T+2. "Shortening the time it takes to settle a trade will bring numerous benefits to investors and the U.S. financial system, including reducing operational risk, enhancing the overall efficiency of U.S. securities markets and aligning the U.S. with other international markets. This is truly a win for investors, the industry and all market participants," SIFMA President and CEO Kenneth Bentsen Jr. said. Read SIFMA's news release.
