Clearstream completes 2004 with strong growth in core businesses

06.01.2005


Double digit growth seen in all new business areas

Clearstream experienced strong growth throughout 2004 in all of its main business areas. The value of assets held in custody on behalf of customers rose to approximately EUR 7.6 trillion, a rise of 3.5 percent from the end of 2003. The number of international transactions processed by Clearstream rose to 17.2 million across 2004, an increase of 4.2 percent year on year. 17 percent of these transactions are registered as stock exchange transactions, 83 percent as Over the Counter (OTC) transactions.

Efficiency gains made possible by the introduction of the equity central counterparty in March 2003 continues to impact domestic settlement transactions in Germany. Due to the successful introduction of the equity central counterparty in 2003, the number for domestic transactions decreased as expected by 27.6 percent from 45.3 million in 2003 to 32.8 million in 2004 with a ratio of 65 percent stock exchange transactions to 35 percent OTC transactions.

Within the Global Securities Financing services business at Clearstream strong growth continues to develop. The combined services include tripartite repo, securities lending and collateral management and for December 2004 the average of collateral under management amounted to EUR 136.4 billion representing a rise of 22.7 percent from the 2003 end of year figure of EUR 111.2 billion.

Clearstream’s investment funds service showed continued volume increases with the number of investment funds related instructions processed reaching an annual total of 1.63 million for 2004, a rise of 31.4 percent from the previous year (2003: 1.24 million). The figure for December 2004 alone of 167,390 instructions represented an increase of 11.2 percent above the previous month (Nov. 2004: 149,822). On Monday 24 January 2005, Clearstream will launch an enhanced version of its investment funds service called Vestima+.

Clearstream also experienced record growth levels with its CreationOnline real-time information service as customer interactions reached another new record level of 1.95 million interactions during December 2004, representing an increase of 10.8 percent from the previous month. The number of registered users of CreationOnline increased last month by 606 to reach a total of 16,391 across 78 countries. User numbers are more than 2.5 times higher than at the end of 2003.

Im Focus: In best circles: First integrated circuit from self-assembled polymer

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.

In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...

Im Focus: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Interference as a new method for cooling quantum devices

Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters

Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
