During 2002 Monte Titoli also completed the development of the core functions of Express II, the new integrated clearing & settlement platform, and of the new RRG system.

March 2003 saw the positive conclusion of the integration test begun in January and the start of testing with the "pilot group" which will conclude at the end of May; in July the entire system is expected to be tested ahead of the launch of the new platform in Autumn 2003.

Express II, created in line with the very latest international standards, will enable important synergies in technical and operational terms, thus helping to improve the efficiency of Italian financial markets and their integration in the European market.
