T+1 Transition and Readiness

T+1 Transition
and Readiness

The securities industry has been evaluating an accelerated settlement cycle, from the current two-day (T+2) cycle to a one-day (T+1) cycle.


On February 15, 2023 The Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) announced that the deadline for transition to T+1 will take place on May 28, 2024. This means that before this date all industry and market participants must make and test the necessary operational changes and technological upgrades required to settle trades in one day.


This acceleration of the settlement cycle could have a significant impact on the capital markets and supporting market infrastructure, particularly for settlement functions and technologies in the U.S. and Canada, with other jurisdictions anticipated to also be drawn into scope.
