Securities lending and borrowing
Irish equities are not eligible for CBL’s securities lending and borrowing programme.
The U.S.A. asserts jurisdiction over transactions involving securities issued or held for custody in the U.S.A., even where the link between the transaction and the U.S.A. is quite attenuated. Some U.S. economic sanctions laws have extraterritorial effect and others impose or threaten third parties' actions with secondary boycotts, which may affect the third parties' access to U.S. financial or other markets. U.S. financial institutions and, in some cases, their foreign-incorporated subsidiaries and affiliates, are subject to U.S. regulations, even when operating outside the U.S.A. CBL intermediates transactions involving securities in which the U.S.A. is the jurisdiction of issuance or custody. CBL also engages U.S. financial institutions to provide custody, depository and other services in selected non-U.S. jurisdictions based on the quality of the services offered and CBL’s other requirements. Such U.S.-owned or controlled institutions may be required to refuse or even block/freeze transactions directly or indirectly involving parties subject to U.S. economic sanctions regulations, regardless of the law of the jurisdiction in which the U.S. institution operates. CBL conducts its business to comply with all laws applicable to CBL. Accordingly, CBL may not be able to complete or may refuse or block/freeze transactions in or through a CBL account that, in CBL's judgment, may expose CBL to U.S. laws and regulations even where neither CBL nor the customer is directly subject to such laws, but where CBL’s chosen custodian or depository is subject to such laws.
Where a U.S.-linked institution serves as CBL’s custodian or depository, the customer acknowledges and accepts the obligation to comply and ensure compliance by any of the customer’s underlying clients, up to the ultimate [legal and] beneficial owner, with any U.S. law, regulation, sanction, order, judgment, injunction, asset freeze, blocking regulation or order or any other act or action of, or by, any national or foreign government, authority, court, (self-) regulatory organisation, government agency or instrumentality of government, including, but not limited to, investment and holding restrictions (“U.S. Regulations”) applicable to any of the customer, its underlying clients or CBL. The customer shall not hold or seek to hold CBL liable for actions by CBL’s chosen custodian or depository to comply with U.S. Regulations applicable to such custodian or depository. The customer shall not, by action or inaction, cause CBL to violate a U.S. Regulation and shall be liable for and hold CBL harmless against any direct or indirect loss, claim, damage, liability or expense, imposed on or incurred by or asserted against CBL in connection with any actual or alleged non-compliance with the aforesaid by the customer or any underlying client of such customer up to the ultimate [legal and] beneficial owner.

Multi-Market securities service
Please refer to the Multi-Market Securities page on the Clearstream website for a complete list of multi-market securities that are settled in Ireland via Euroclear Bank and the corresponding instruction specifications.
As there are an additional number of intermediaries in the settlement chain, cross-border transfers and realignments may take several days to settle. Consequently, Clearstream Banking cannot guarantee timely settlement of cross-border instructions which means that CSDR SDR cash penalties might occur if there is late or failed settlement.
Customers are therefore strongly recommended to send their cross-border settlement instructions to Clearstream Banking as early as possible to avoid settlement delays.
