Clearing and settlement

The acceleration of European financial integration has led to significant improvements in trading processes and major advances in securities' registration, clearing and settlement systems. In keeping with modern trading systems, the Spanish securities market has developed an agile and efficient settlement system. All stocks are "book-entered", that is to say, registered by a computerised accounting register run by IBERCLEAR.

Via IBERCLEAR acting as the Central Securities Depository of Spain, BME manages the registration, clearing and settlement systems for Spanish Equity and listed Corporate Debt and Public Debt operations.
