Clearing and Settlement of Cash Equities in Australia

Business Committee

Under the Code of Practice for Clearing and Settlement of Cash Equities in Australia (the Code), ASX committed to establish a Business Committee to support the Forum.  The Business Committee will provide business and operational input on the forward work program of the Forum.  The Business Committee will also progress issues of interest to industry, such as the design of technology solutions and or more flexible participant structures.

The Business Committee will comprise representatives of clearing participants, settlement participants and alternative market operators.  The objective for the Business Committee is for it to comprise executives with a deep understanding of clearing and settlement, for example, Chief Operating Officers.

Forum Members that are direct users of ASX’s clearing and settlement services have been invited to nominate individuals to participate in the Business Committee.  ASX Clear and ASX Settlement will also invite representatives of clearing participants and settlement participants not represented in the Forum to participate in the Business Committee.

Meeting Dates for the Business Committee

The Business Committee will meet at least three times a year.  Business Committee meetings will be held between 4 to 6 weeks prior to Forum meetings.  The upcoming meeting dates of the Business Committee are:

27 August 2014 12:00pm – 3:00pm (A working lunch will be provided)

All meetings will be held at ASX Limited, 20 Bridge Street, Sydney NSW 2000.

All agendas and minutes for Forum meetings will be made publicly available on this website.

Forum members have been provided with a list of possible themes and topics for their input and the development of a forward work program for the Forum and the Business Committee.  A forward work program has been developed with input from the Forum and the Business Committee.  The forward work program is available here.
