Liquidity: a priority for ECB, a top focus for TAS Capital Markets R&D since 2010

“Liquidity” is one of the five top supervising priorities of the European Central Bank in 2016, as announced in their recent press release of January 6. This focus is in line with the approaching January 2017 deadline, when Basel III regulation will compel all supervised financial institutions to monitor “intraday liquidity” and provide mandatory reporting, as per Single Supervisory Mechanism (SSM)
This comes as no surprise for TAS Group: we have been working on Liquidity Management concerns for the past 10 years with banks and market infrastructures, as well as investing in academic research with CeTIF (the Research Centre on Technology, Innovation and Financial Services) studying various key aspects that have an impact on Banks’ Treasury Departments over the last four years. TAS Group’s extensive experience in the liquidity management domain has defined the huge market success of Aquarius in 2015, the first new generation platform with the highest adoption rate in Italy, designed specifically to enable a comprehensive integrated and optimized management of Securities, Cash and Collateral, already adopted by more than 20 customers for the T2S Wave 1 migration.

TAS Group is excited to be releasing two new deliverables in Q1 of this year:

  • Intraday Liquidity Management and T2S: Benefits and impacts of the new platform for securities settlement on liquidity management – the 4th research report produced and published through a collaboration with CeTIF.
  • The new Intraday Liquidity Module of Aquarius, preparing Banks for compliance with Basel III Monitoring and Reporting requirements while simultaneously optimizing Intraday liquidity operations.
