Global Securities Financing: Improvement to eligibility criteria



14 May 2018

As part of Clearstream Banking's1 continuous improvement process, increased granularity and new criteria have been made available for the creation of collateral baskets within the Triparty Collateral Management Service.

ECB criteria

For securities included within the list published by the ECB, collateral allocation can be managed using ECB Criteria alone or combined with our full suite of available fields.

Structured bond subtypes

The granularity of structured bond subtypes has been improved, to include:

  • LN - Linked Notes
  • ELN - Equity Linked Notes
  • COCO - Contingent Convertible

To maintain integrity of signed collateral baskets, the new subtypes will be automatically excluded from baskets agreed and signed before this date. Customers wishing to include the new structured subtypes should contact their Relationship Officer.

Inflation Linked Notes (ILN)     

Due to the high number of sovereign bonds issued with the characteristic “Inflation Linked Notes” , it is managed as a separate criteria.

Issuers/Other criteria

Additionally, a number of criteria have been added, based upon:

  • Issuer LEI
  • Ultimate parental issuer LEI
  • Issuer country of domicile
  • Issuer country of incorporation
  • Issuer country of risk
  • Ultimate Parent Issuer (UPI) country of risk
  • Loan participation notes
