Slovak Republic and Slovenia: OneClearstream service activation


Clearstream Banking1 informs clients that effective

March 2024 (Slovak Republic) and April 2024 (Slovenia)2

the activation of new direct links to Centrálny depozitár cenných papierov SR (CDCP, the Slovak domestic CSD) and Klirinško depotna družba d.d. (KDD, the Slovenian domestic CSD) will take place. This will result in the eligibility of all Slovak and Slovenian securities for settlement in TARGET2-Securities (T2S).

Scope of securities eligible for the OneClearstream service

From the effective date of the OneClearstream service offered by Clearstream Banking AG (CBF), securities eligible for settlement in CBF-T2S with the non-collective safe custody via T2S (NCSC-T) status include but are not limited to:

  • Government bonds;
  • Corporate bonds;
  • Listed equities;
  • Ordinary shares;
  • Warrants.

All securities will be eligible for settlement via T2S upon activation of the link. However, CBF will only create ISINs for the securities for which CBF has a position.

The list of the created ISINs is planned to be available on the Clearstream website six weeks before the migration date.

Impact on clients 

Information about specific client migration impact, for example, on clients’ CBF 6-series accounts or Clearstream Banking S.A. (CBL) accounts, as well as tax related information will be made available in due time via follow-up announcements. 

Note: Should there be any changes to or additional information on the planned OneClearstream service activation, Clearstream Banking will inform clients accordingly.
