T+1 Command Center

To ensure a smooth conversion to T+1 settlement on May 28, 2024, the T+1 Command Center will provide conversion status information, transparency into the activity of other participants, and serve as a forum for issue identification and socialization. The T+1 Command Center’s support will be most active during the conversion period, from Friday, May 24 through Friday, May 31.

Command Center Updates

Updates from the Command Center throughout the conversion period:

Issue Identification and Socialization

Each individual firm is responsible for executing its own T+1 transition plan. Firms should first communicate directly with their clients and suppliers regarding any issues that arise during the conversion period. A firm should address any problem that occurs within the firm or with a counterparty, infrastructure, service provider, vendor, or other intermediaries directly with that entity. The T+1 Command Center is not responsible for issue identification and resolution between individual firms and their infrastructure and/or service providers.

The T+1 Command Center will provide a forum for the industry to raise and socialize broad industry issues that are beyond the scope of firm-specific challenges, provide updates, and work with appropriate parties to determine any additional steps required. Industry participants should raise such issues to or on the industry conference calls scheduled throughout the conversion period.
