MUMBAI, India and STOCKHOLM, Sweden, July 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The National Stock Exchange of India (NSE) and Nasdaq have officially signed an agreement for Nasdaq to deliver a customized real-time clearing, risk management and settlement technology to one of the world’s largest stock exchanges. In addition to the post-trade agreement, Nasdaq has also signed an agreement with NSEIT to utilize NSEIT’s capability in implementations and project augmentation globally. Further, the two exchanges signed a Memorandum of Understanding (MOU) to explore business opportunities across listings, corporate and market services and data and innovations in products, processes and technology.
The new post-trade technology will replace NSE’s current clearing and settlement system operated by the National Securities Clearing Corporation Limited (NSCCL), a wholly owned subsidiary of NSE. The technology will provide a state-of-the-art architecture utilizing the Nasdaq Financial Framework, which will enable all asset classes to be cleared and settled in one system. These changes will increase efficiency, effectiveness of the market, supported by a modern, flexible and efficient technology that reduces risks in the post-trade area alongside international best practices and standards.

NSCCL’s tie-up with Nasdaq will provide us the right platform and technology backbone to effectively synergize post–trade delivery capabilities.

Further, I am confident that the broad based strategic partnership agreement with Nasdaq will take the relationship between the two exchange groups to the next level and would benefit capital markets in both the countries.”
