On 30th March 2016, the Australian Treasurer released a statement announcing “a reform package that opens the door to competition in the clearing of cash equities, acting on the recommendations of the Council of Financial Regulators’ (CFR) Review of Competition in Clearing Australian Cash Equities.”
