Xact Web Portal: Credit Usage and High Liquidity Collateral (HLC) management


Clearstream Banking1 would like to inform customers that according to the conditions specified in Article 9, Article 10(1) and Article 10(2) of Commission Delegated Regulation (EU) 2017/390 of 11 November 2016 (supplementing Regulation (EU) No 909/2014), and further to Announcement A20054, it will introduce a new credit usage and HLC monitoring module in Xact Web Portal, effective

7 December 2020


In line with the above regulation, Clearstream Banking offers customers the possibility of monitoring their High Liquidity Collateral (HLC) value against the credit line usage as defined in the contractual Credit Terms and Conditions (CTCs) establishing the need for the customer to cover their credit line exposure.

To assist customers in complying with the minimum HLC requirement, a new module is available in Xact Web Portal that allows a user with the adequate profile to query for:

  • Their credit line usage;
  • The total value and percentage of HLC;
  • The value of additional HLC to be brought by the customer if a minimum HLC breach at the account, umbrella or institution level has occurred.

Xact Web Portal queries

Customers are able to use a new “Credit Usage & HLC Query” sub-domain under “Cash & Liquidity”, “Usage” in Xact Web Portal that displays data both at institution and account level.
