Clearstream Banking1 hereby informs customers that the following additional reports and statements will be made available to support year-end activities.

List of pending stock exchange trades

  • List of pending stock exchange trades sorted by security classes
  • List of pending stock exchange trades sorted by counterparty

The lists will be generated on the evening of the last bank business day in 2018 (Monday, 31 December 2018). They will contain all pending stock exchange trades which cannot be settled in the old year, up until and including trading day of 31 December 2018.
