Clearstream, a post-trade services provider owned by the Deutsche Börse Group, saw small increases in its business lines in April.

These upticks spread across the services provider’s global securities financing (GSF), international central securities depository (ICSD), domestic CSD and investment funds services (IFS).

The updates are contained in the provider’s monthly figures for April 2022 released on Wednesday.

Segmental Breakdown

GSF, Clearstream’s collateral management, securities lending and borrowing services, saw its volume rise outstandingly by 8% month-on-month (MoM) from €546 billion to €591.5 billion.

On a year-to-date (YTD) basis, the provider’s GSF service jumped 10% from €525.9 billion to €577.1 billion.

On the depository side, securities deposits in Clearstream’s ICSD increased by 7% MoM, rising from €7,234 billion to €7,749 billion.

However, the total number of securities deposit transactions during this period at the ICSD dropped -6% to 5.7 million from 6.1 million.

On a YTD basis, while the uptick in total securities deposits is a 5% increase, the fall in the total number of transactions stands at -15%.

At the domestic level, Clearstream’s securities deposits rose by 2% from €5,551 billion in April 2021 to €5,653 in April 2022.

However, unlike the ICSD, this rise in domestic securities deposits stems from a 4% change MoM in the total number of transactions which shot up from 13 million to 13.5 million.

In fact, on a YTD basis, the uptick in the domestic CDS translates to a 7% upturn in securities deposits and a 10% rise in the total number of transactions.

Clearstream’s Investment Funds Services is not left out. The services provider’s IFS recorded a 6% increase in securities deposits, which rose MoM from €3,137 to €3,329.

The total number of transactions in this regard increased by 4%, rising from 3.5 million to 3.6 million MoM.

As a result of these, Clearstream’s IFS’ assets under custody (AUC) also jumped 5% MoM and 7% YTD, rising from €15,921 billion to €16,731 billion, and from €15,652 billion to €16,704 billion, respectively.
