Turkey: Credit facilities stopped due to liquidity conditions in Turkish Lira (TRY)


Clearstream Banking1 informs customers that due to liquidity stress on the Turkish Lira (TRY), effective


credit facilities will no longer be provided within Clearstream Banking’s books.

Impact on customers

In the event of end of day short positions in TRY held in our books, we may apply the value of the overdraft that is charged to Clearstream Banking by the sub-custodian.

As an indication, the interest charge on the end of day overdraft on the 27 March 2019 is over 810% flat. This value fluctuates on a daily basis.
