The TCS platform covers all Euronext Cash Market instruments (equities, ETFs, warrants, certificates and bonds). It is available to all Euronext Cash Market members through their standard connection, and can also be accessed using our web based application, TCS-Web.
TCS complements our APA/ARM reporting services, which are open to all market participants.
Deferred Settlement Service
The Deferred Settlement Service (SRD) is a mechanism that allows French investors to take a long or short leveraged position in a regulated and secure environment. The service is mainly used by private investors as an alternative to margin accounts.
How the Service Works
The investor identifies an order as SRD when passing it to his/her financial intermediary. The order is then immediately routed to the Regulated Market, where it is executed and settled in a standard two-day time period.
The intermediary finances the investor’s position until the end of the month, when the investor receives the balance of positions in his/her account. The leverage is the result of the cover ratio the investor has to put toward his position at the time of execution.
Euronext organises a centralised borrowing and lending market to help brokers carry their clients’ short positions. The service is charged by the intermediary; commissions are fixed freely by the brokers
