Xact Web Portal: New report details options for German non-cleared stock exchange instructions - Update


Note: This announcement, originally published on 6 November 2020 has been amended to provide additional information on the implementation approach for the project “Stock Exchange Instructions to OTC”. Changes have been highlighted.

Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers on an upgrade to “Report details” options in Xact Web Portal. The introduction of the new selection will be delivered in steps. The extension of the service offering is related to the changes to be implemented for the project "Stock Exchange Instructions Go OTC (SET-GO)".

In November 2021, the SET-GO Phase 1 (ICSD Migration) will be launched. On 23 November 2020, new report options have been introduced. These enhanced subscriptions enable a segregation of over-the-counter (OTC) and German non-cleared stock exchange instructions.

Customers can select under "Report details" one of the following "Business types":

  • Option 1: All instructions;
  • Option 2: OTC instructions only;
  • Option 3: Non-cleared stock exchange instruction only.

Effective 14 June 2021, if one of these options has been activated, the reports will start being generated as scheduled.

Functional description

The business type “stock exchange instruction” will be used for Clearstream Banking S.A. (CBL) internal instructions that are provided with the Instructing Party “DAKVDEFFLIO”. In Xact Web Portal, the “Settlement Transaction Type” corresponding to SWIFT :22F::SETR will bear the value “CEDE/SENO”.

The subscription options will be available for all CBL internal instructions types:

  • Receive free instructions (4F);
  • Deliver free instructions (5F);

The following definitions apply for the report subscription when using the “business type”:

All instructions
If this option is used, the current reporting will not be affected. The reports will contain the settlement results for OTC and Stock Exchange instructions. This report subscription will remain valid and is will not be impacted by the implementation of SET-GO Phase 1 (ICSD Migration).

OTC instructions only
If this option is selected, only settlement results for OTC instructions will be presented in the associated reports. This subscription enables a distinction between OTC and Stock Exchange instructions. This definition will also be valid beyond the implementation of SET-GO Phase 1 (ICSD Migration).

Stock exchange instruction only (Non-cleared)
The content of the associated reports relates to the selected message type and is linked the implementation of SET-GO Phase 1 (ICSD Migration) in November 2021:

  • Settlement Confirmations (MT54x):
    -> If subscribed to prior to 20 November 2021, the report will provide information about “LION” instructions. During the deployment weekend and with the introduction of SET-GO Phase 1 (ICSD Migration) the content will change. That is as of 20 November 2021, Stock Exchange instructions will be presented in an OTC-like mode;
  • Transaction reporting of pending instructions (MT537), Status and processing advice (MT548), and Cash management information (MT94x):  -> The subscription can be set up, but these reports will not contain information until SET-GO Phase 1 (ICSD Migration) has been successfully launched and stock exchange instructions are processed in an OTC-like mode via Creation.

Potential customer impact

The new report subscription options are optional. Customers that would like to receive the settlement reporting as offered today do not need to maintain the settings. In general, the existing report definition for CBF-i accounts corresponds to “Option 1” providing the information for all OTC instructions including stock exchange instructions.

If customers would like to activate options “OTC instructions only” or “Stock exchange instruction only”, the start date for the reporting needs to be considered. Clearstream Banking recommends customers being a member of a German stock exchange location or acting as a settlement agent to enable the reporting with a start date 20 November 2021. If no start date is defined, the subscription status will be “Active (Xact)”. This means the report creation will be immediately productive and the reporting will be transmitted to the defined technical receiver. Customers that will enter report subscriptions before the go-live of the June 2021 Release will receive the reporting as of 14 June 2021.
