The toolkit sets out a range of operational, trading and risk processes that need to be reviewed and enhanced ahead of the incoming settlement discipline regime.
DTCC plans to develop an open, integrated platform for delivering no-touch processing, from post-execution to settlement.
Euroclear has received CSDR authorisation for three other CSDs based in France, Belgium and the Netherlands.
Incoming regulation requires a third-party buy-in agent in cases of settlement fail.
This rules will require firms that are taking on settlement themselves, and not through a CSD or sub-custodian, to report data on a quarterly basis.
Euroclear has now become CSDR approved in four countries, including Belgium, Finland, France and the UK.
The research explained how, for some firms, most settlement communications still occur through email instead of through secure networks.
Custodians could deliver superior value focusing on identifying operational pain-points for customers and created solutions off the back of it, according to Deutsche Bank.
