Realignment Guide - Germany
The links between Clearstream Banking’s platforms, CASCADE and Creation, and several Central Securities Depositories (CSD) enable customers to transfer eligible securities (that is, securities accepted in CASCADE and in Creation and by the appropriate CSD) from one platform to the other, for example, from Collective Safe Custody (CSC) to Non-Collective Safe Custody (NCSC) and vice versa. These transfers, that exclude by definition any change of beneficial ownership, are referred to as Creation-CASCADE realignments.
