Moving to T+2 settlement

In March 2016, the ASX, Chi-X and APX will move from a T+3 (trade date plus three business days) to a T+2 (trade date plus two business days) settlement cycle for cash market trades in Australia. This change will affect all financial products traded on Australian markets and will help to keep Australia aligned with global settlement practices.

What is settlement?
When you buy or sell shares, warrants, ETFs and other listed instruments through your broker you contract to exchange the legal ownership of those instruments for money. This exchange is called settlement. In today’s market, standard settlement usually occurs three business days after a trade takes place (T+3), however the proposed changes will mean this will be done in two business days from March 2016 (T+2).

What does this mean for me?
With a T+2 settlement cycle it will mean you have one less day to settle trades, meaning that you will have quicker access to your funds after selling your shares and will need to fund your buy earlier after purchasing shares.
For more information visit the ASX T+2 website or read the Transition to T+2 Settlement information sheet.
