Interest rates on year-end long cash balances

18.12.2017

Clearstream Banking1 would like to remind customers that over year-end, interest rates may be subject to unusually high volatility. As a result, negative interest rates in certain currencies may exceed usual levels. In line with current market practice, we reserve the right to charge negative rates on long balances based on prevailing market conditions.

Customers are asked to monitor their cash balances and ensure they remain within their normal levels. In the event that balances are in excess of normal business levels, and as a result of prevailing market conditions, we retain the right to apply an exceptional charge on these balances.
