Cash and banking overview

Whether you hold accounts in Clearstream’s International Central Securities Depository (ICSD), Clearstream’s Central Securities Depository (CSD) or both, Clearstream’s cash and banking services are designed to maximise your available liquidity and provide financing for the settlement of your transactions globally. For CSD positions, access to central bank money is through self-collateralisation of security settlement. For ICSD positions, this means self-collateralisation of transactions; maximising liquidity through collateralised credit lines and efficient use of commercial bank money; and collateral optimisation through umbrella accounts and access to central bank collateral during the night. But the real value of cash and banking services comes from ensuring that liquidity moves effortlessly between the ICSD and CSD environments.
