ISIN issuance and acceptance for Investment Funds

26.03.2018

Effective

Monday 26 March 2018

Clearstream Banking1 will adjust its procedures for the issuance of LU ISIN codes for investment funds. New LU ISIN requests presented to fundacceptance@clearstream.com will be considered for issuance of an ISIN code only. 

Clearstream Banking, as National Numbering Agency (NNA) for Luxembourg, issues ISIN, CFI and FISN codes for any Luxembourg-domiciled securities, according to ANNA guidelines and more specifically for Luxembourg-incorporated investment funds and companies.

Clearstream Banking has in the past checked if the newly issued LU ISINs can be admitted immediately to its Vestima platform. This will no longer be the case. From now on, acceptance in Clearstream Banking (including the Vestima platform) may only be requested by fund investors.

 If an LU ISIN code is intended for listing on the Luxembourg Stock Exchange, a separate request may be submitted to Clearstream Banking for settlement and transferability eligibility assessment.

Further information

Additional details on the new process are available on the Clearstream website.
