United Kingdom: Debt securities – Trade date to become mandatory


Further to Announcement A20029 published on 15 June 2020, Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers that effective

13 July 2020

the trade date will become a mandatory field in Clearstream Banking for settlement instructions on the direct link to the Euroclear UK and Ireland (EUI) CREST system.

Impact on customers

Failure to include the trade date in the settlement instructions will result in Clearstream Banking rejecting the instruction.

The trade date is already mandatory for settlement instructions on Clearstream Banking’s indirect link to CREST for UK equities.

The date remains 27 July 2020 for when place of trade and type of trade become mandatory in the Euroclear UK and Ireland (EUI) CREST system.

Further information

Further details will be provided to customers about the qualifiers accepted by CREST and the impact on pending instructions in due course.

For further information, customers may contact Clearstream Banking Client Services or their Relationship Officer.
