Clearstream turns 50

2020 marks a special anniversary: As a market infrastructure provider, we at Clearstream have helped shape markets over the past 50 years, as they have grown more interconnected, complex and digital.

Throughout the years, our core tasks remain the same: fostering the efficiency, stability and integrity of financial markets.

By putting our customers at the centre of what we do and supporting global financial markets with our solutions, we have evolved to become a global player at the forefront of our industry.

Today, Clearstream is a leading European supplier of post-trade services with assets under custody worth around €14 trillion and a comprehensive portfolio including collateral management and investment fund services. Clearstream operates an international central securities depository (ICSD) as well as the Luxembourg and German central securities depositories (CSDs).

Combined, we process 170 million settlement transactions annually. We work with up to 100 currencies and serve 58 domestic markets worldwide plus the international market.

The 50-year journey that has led us here has only been possible thanks to our valued customers and partners as well as our over 2,400 dedicated colleagues around the world.

We are excited to continue this journey with all of our stakeholders to shape the financial markets of the future and jointly create trust by ensuring their efficiency, stability and integrity.
