Securities Lending and Borrowing Service: New option for lenders


Clearstream Banking1 informs customers that, in order to provide more granularity to lenders for the management of their balances and lending activity, effective

4 July 2022

a new option will be offered to lenders participating in its lending programs and prior to attempting Clearstream Banking’s automated lender substitution or initiating the automated recall process.

Current options allow triggering the above process based either on matched instructions or on unmatched delivery instructions from the lender or unmatched receipt instruction from its counterparty.

The new option will allow the process to be triggered based on the delivery instruction from the lender ONLY, being matched or unmatched and without considering any receipt from lender’s counterparty.

The Lender Profile Authorisation form has been amended accordingly and now offers this alternative option2 to existing and new lenders:

  • Include Lender substitutions/recall ONLY on matched delivery instructions (existing option);
  • Include Lender substitutions/recall ONLY on matched/unmatched delivery instructions (new option).
