French registered securities: Important operational note for the LBS season - update

26.11.2019

Clearstream Banking1 informs customers that the Loyalty Bonus Share season 2019 for French registered securities has started.

With the new service offering implemented in June 2019, Clearstream Banking would like to remind the importance of complying with Clearstream Banking recommendations when instructing the registration details in the corporate action instruction.

Failing to comply with this recommendation may lead in some instances to the rejection of instructions and as well as it will not allow Clearstream Banking to generate a valid Bordereau de Reference Nominative (BRN) in due time (maximum of 4 business days) on the market.

The “4 business days” period starts as soon as the settlement instruction to move the securities from customer’s bearer account to customer’s registered account has settled.

Clearstream Banking expects customers respond quickly to any enquiries to avoid delay in generating the BRN; a delay could cause customers to be ineligible for the LBS event.

Further information

The service description and the format to instruct registration details are available in the Market Link Guide - France, under Settlement services French registered securities and Asset servicing French registered securities.
