Bank of New York has filed its application to join CLS Services Ltd., a new industry organization designed to ensure cooperation in the reduction of settlement risk arising from foreign exchange transactions.

London-based CLSS was set up to create a global continuous linked settlement system. The system will be operated by a specially created CLS Bank, based in New York, which will handle all major currency foreign exchange settlements. The system is expected to dramatically reduce foreign exchange settlement exposure.
