Given the interconnected nature of our ecosystem, it is critical that institutions must be capable of successfully participating in CLSSettlement without posing unnecessary risk to the other participants and the settlement system.

Banks, funds, non-bank financial institutions and multinational corporations can use CLSSettlement to mitigate settlement risk by using a CLS third-party service provider. These are settlement members that offer CLSSettlement as a service to other institutions.
