Strong growth at Clearstream for September 2004

07.10.2004


Clearstream’s core business figures showed further growth levels in September 2004.

The number of international transactions processed by Clearstream rose to 12.8 million year to date September 2004, an increase of 4.6 percent year on year (January to September 2003: 12.2 million). 18 percent of these transactions are registered as stock exchange transactions, 82 percent as Over the Counter (OTC) transactions. The introduction of the equity central counterparty in March 2003 continues to result in efficiency gains that affect domestic transactions. As expected, the corresponding number for domestic transactions decreased by 30.9 percent from 36.1 million in 2003 to 24.9 million year to date 2004 with a ratio of 66 percent stock exchange transactions to 34 percent OTC transactions.

The value of assets held in custody on behalf of customers rose to approximately EUR 7.4 trillion, a rise of 1.8 percent from the same month last year. The breakdown of this growth shows advances of 9.4 percent for international assets and declines of 3.3 percent for domestic assets.



In other business areas, Clearstream’s CreationOnline real-time information service continued to grow rapidly with customer interactions reaching a new record level of 1.6 million during September, representing an increase of 33 percent from the previous month. The number of registered users of CreationOnline increased last month by 1,009 to reach a total of 14,325 across 77 countries.
Another core business area for Clearstream is the Global Securities Financing services which have shown further growth. The combined services include tripartite repo, securities lending and collateral management and for September 2004 the average of collateral under management amounted to EUR 130 billion representing a rise of 27 percent from the same month last year (September 2003: EUR 102 billion).

Clearstream’s investment funds service showed further volume increases with the number of investment funds related instructions processed reaching over 124,200 in September 2004, a rise of 7 percent from the same month last year (September 2003: 116,000).

Im Focus: Frictional Heat Powers Hydrothermal Activity on Enceladus

Computer simulation shows how the icy moon heats water in a porous rock core

Heat from the friction of rocks caused by tidal forces could be the “engine” for the hydrothermal activity on Saturn's moon Enceladus. This presupposes that...

Im Focus: Nanoparticles help with malaria diagnosis – new rapid test in development

The WHO reports an estimated 429,000 malaria deaths each year. The disease mostly affects tropical and subtropical regions and in particular the African continent. The Fraunhofer Institute for Silicate Research ISC teamed up with the Fraunhofer Institute for Molecular Biology and Applied Ecology IME and the Institute of Tropical Medicine at the University of Tübingen for a new test method to detect malaria parasites in blood. The idea of the research project “NanoFRET” is to develop a highly sensitive and reliable rapid diagnostic test so that patient treatment can begin as early as possible.

Malaria is caused by parasites transmitted by mosquito bite. The most dangerous form of malaria is malaria tropica. Left untreated, it is fatal in most cases....

Im Focus: A “cosmic snake” reveals the structure of remote galaxies

The formation of stars in distant galaxies is still largely unexplored. For the first time, astron-omers at the University of Geneva have now been able to closely observe a star system six billion light-years away. In doing so, they are confirming earlier simulations made by the University of Zurich. One special effect is made possible by the multiple reflections of images that run through the cosmos like a snake.

Today, astronomers have a pretty accurate idea of how stars were formed in the recent cosmic past. But do these laws also apply to older galaxies? For around a...

Im Focus: Visual intelligence is not the same as IQ

Just because someone is smart and well-motivated doesn't mean he or she can learn the visual skills needed to excel at tasks like matching fingerprints, interpreting medical X-rays, keeping track of aircraft on radar displays or forensic face matching.

That is the implication of a new study which shows for the first time that there is a broad range of differences in people's visual ability and that these...

Im Focus: Novel Nano-CT device creates high-resolution 3D-X-rays of tiny velvet worm legs

Computer Tomography (CT) is a standard procedure in hospitals, but so far, the technology has not been suitable for imaging extremely small objects. In PNAS, a team from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) describes a Nano-CT device that creates three-dimensional x-ray images at resolutions up to 100 nanometers. The first test application: Together with colleagues from the University of Kassel and Helmholtz-Zentrum Geesthacht the researchers analyzed the locomotory system of a velvet worm.

During a CT analysis, the object under investigation is x-rayed and a detector measures the respective amount of radiation absorbed from various angles....
