Herstatt Bank became a significant participant in the foreign exchange markets. During and , the U. The bank made wrong bets on the direction of the dollar, and by June had accumulated DM million in losses, compared with capital of only DM44 million. Liquidation[ edit ] On 26 June , German regulators forced the troubled Bank Herstatt into liquidation.

The bank was closed at German time, which was New York time. Because of time zone differences, Herstatt ceased operations between the times of the respective payments. The counterparty banks did not receive their USD payments. Called the Basel Committee on Banking Supervision , the committee comprises representatives from central banks and regulatory authorities.

This type of settlement risk, in which one party in a foreign exchange trade pays out the currency it sold but does not receive the currency it bought, is sometimes called Herstatt risk.

The failure of Herstatt Bank was a key factor that led to the worldwide implementation of real-time gross settlement RTGS systems, which ensure that payments between one bank and another are executed in real-time and are considered final. This payment versus payment PVP process enables member banks to trade foreign currencies without assuming the settlement risk associated with the process, whereby a counterparty could fail before delivering their leg of the transaction.

Learn how and when to remove this template message Settlement risk is the risk that a counterparty or intermediary agent fails to deliver a security or its value in cash as per agreement when the security was traded after the other counterparty or counterparties have already delivered security or cash value as per the trade agreement. The term covers factors incidental to the settlement process which may suspend or prevent a trade from completing, even though the parties themselves are in agreement, are acting in good faith , and otherwise competent to perform. The term applies only to risks inherent to the settlement method of a particular transaction. Broader risks of trading such as political risk or systemic risk may interrupt markets and prevent settlement, but these are not settlement risk per se.
