BoE and ESMA agree MoUs on CCPs and CSD

The European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA) agreed memoranda of understanding (MoUs) with the Bank of England (BoE) for the recognition of central counterparties (CCPs) and the central securities depository (CSD) established in the UK, that would take effect should the UK leave the EU without a withdrawal agreement—a no-deal Brexit scenario. ESMA previously communicated, in its public statements of 23 November and 19 December 2018, that its board of supervisors supports continued access to UK CCPs and to the UK CSD, in order to limit the risk of disruption in central clearing and to avoid any negative impact on the financial stability of the EU. It will also allow the UK CSD to continue to serve Irish securities, and to limit the risk of disruption to the Irish securities market.
