Global Custodian, in partnership with SWIFT and SIX, will be hosting an event at the London Stock Exchange to discuss opportunities for collaboration within the securities services industry on 27 October.

Collaboration is increasingly becoming the solution along the investment chain whether it is around data, collateral or technology.

Where once competitors would solely see each other as rivals, bigger issues and threats in the industry have prevailed and the time has come to work together to strengthen the future of the securities services industry.

The event – named Collaborate to Innovate – will explore the different ways in which securities services firms can work together.

Recent examples have been DTCC and Euroclear partnering on collateral, SIX teaming up with Clearstream and custodians join various blockchain initiatives together.

In partnership with SWIFT, Global Custodian will bring together a range of participants to discuss areas and opportunities for collaboration in an interactive event at the London Stock Exchange, with LCH also featuring on the panel.

Registration for the event will begin at 16.30, with the panel discussion starting at 17.00. The event will be followed by a cocktail reception.
