TARGET2-Securities (T2S)

T2S will be a single settlement platform offering Delivery versus Payment (DvP) settlement in central bank money, which is called CPSS Model I DvP, for different currencies on a real-time gross basis. Links between CSDs of the European Union will be redundant with the introduction of T2S, because the settlement can be processed on a single common platform. All CSDs, who will sign or already have signed the framework agreement (e.g. Clearstream) with the Eurosystem, will be directly connected with T2S.

In addition agent banks will be able to route their settlement instructions directly to T2S and query related information through an web-based Graphical User Interface (GUI).
