NASDAQ Dubai: New internal settlement charge absorbed by Clearstream


NASDAQ Dubai has recently announced that they will charge 7 bps on customers’ over-the-counter (OTC) equities internal transfers/settlement, within our omnibus account at our depository, for which there are no corresponding on-exchange trades.

The 7 bps charge, which is imposed on both sides of the transaction (buyer and seller), is based on the value of the transaction and is calculated on the closing price of the transferred security on the day before execution of such transaction.

Such charge will take effect on 1 March 2013 and will be reviewed by NASDAQ Dubai three months after implementation.

However, in recognition of our customers' support on this link, we have made the decision to absorb this new charge. Subject to NASDAQ Dubai's further review, we will notify customers of any subsequent decision and/or any necessary next steps.
