T+2 Command Center

Thank You

With double settlement complete, we are now operating in a T+2 regular way settlement environment.

The T+2 Command Center greatly appreciates the hard work of many in making this conversion a success.

Overview

To ensure a smooth conversion to T+2 settlement on September 5, 2017, the T+2 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+2 Command Center’s support will be most active during the conversion period, from Friday, September 1 through Friday, September 8.

Issue Identification and Socialization

Each individual firm is responsible for executing its own T+2 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+2 Command Center is not responsible for issue identification and resolution between individual firms and their infrastructure and/or service providers.

The T+2 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 T2Conversion@sifma.org or on the industry conference calls scheduled throughout the conversion period.
