Clearstream began 2005 with growth in its core businesses and new business streams continuing progress made in 2004. The value of assets held in custody on behalf of customers rose to approximately EUR 7.7 trillion, a rise of 2.5 percent from the same month last year. The number of international transactions processed by Clearstream stood at 1.5 million for January 2005 compared to 1.7 million for the same month last year. Of these transactions, 15 percent are registered as stock exchange transactions, 85 percent were Over the Counter (OTC) transactions. For domestic settlement transactions in Germany, the figure for the month stood at 2.6 million representing a decrease of 23 percent due to central counterparty efficiencies (January 2004: 3.5 million). The ratio for domestic settlement transactions was 66 percent stock exchange transactions to 34 percent OTC transactions.
Within the Global Securities Financing services business at Clearstream strong growth continued with the monthly average outstandings reaching EUR 140 billion. The combined services include tripartite repo, securities lending and collateral management and collectively experienced a rise of over 29.4 percent from the same month last year (January 2004: EUR 108.2 billion).
In January, Clearstream launched an enhanced version of its investment funds service called Vestima+. The improved investment funds service showed further volume increases with the number of investment funds related instructions processed reaching 165,795 in January 2005, a rise of 24.2 percent from the same month last year (January 2004: 133,464).

The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
Two researchers at Heidelberg University have developed a model system that enables a better understanding of the processes in a quantum-physical experiment...
Glaciers might seem rather inhospitable environments. However, they are home to a diverse and vibrant microbial community. It’s becoming increasingly clear that they play a bigger role in the carbon cycle than previously thought.
A new study, now published in the journal Nature Geoscience, shows how microbial communities in melting glaciers contribute to the Earth’s carbon cycle, a...
