Russia: Change of operator

17.01.2017

Clearstream Banking1 is pleased to announce that effective settlement date

30 January 2017

Sberbank of Russia will become operator of Clearstream Banking’s Foreign Nominee Holder (FNH) account at the Russian Central Securities Depository, the National Settlement Depository (NSD).

Impact on customers

Clearstream Banking’s link to Russia is currently operated by Deutsche Bank Moscow. The change of operator will not impact customers’ assets which remain in CBL’s FNH account at the NSD.

Specific settlement instruction process on 27 January 2017

  • In order to facilitate the transfer, we ask customers to enter their domestic instructions with requested settlement date of Friday 27 January 2017 by the cut-off time deadlines.
  • All instructions with requested settlement date Friday 27 January 2017 will be processed through Deutsche Bank Moscow until the fourth settlement cycle in Russia (around 16:00 CET).
  • We also recommend that customers inform their counterparties to send their matching instructions as soon as possible to avoid any potential cancellation.

Handling of pending trades on transfer date (27 January 2017)

  • Instructions matched and unmatched for settlement date up to and including 27 January 2017 still pending at the end of the fourth settlement cycle in Russia (around 16:00 CET) that day will be cancelled and re-instructed by CBL Operations, with notice to the impacted customers by MT548.
  • We remind customers that they should only send instructions with requested settlement date 30 January 2017 or later, after 21:00 CET on 27 January 2017 to avoid cancellations and ensure appropriate settlement with the new operator.
  • Clearstream Banking customers will not need to advise their counterparty to re-instruct any instructions that have been cancelled or reversed in Clearstream Banking’s system for further settlement from 30 January 2017.

For settlement against payment, domestic counterparties must indicate the type of DVP settlement model to be applied at NSD. CBL uses the DVP-1 model and so domestic counterparties must always include (in SWIFT) :22F::NETT//NNET in their settlement instructions.

If the counterparty omits this field or indicates a different DVP settlement model, the trade will not match.

Note: Clearstream Banking customers do not need to add this information. Settlement against payment applies only to assets safekept in Clearstream Banking’s FNH account.
