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: Future electronic components to be printed like newspapers

A new manufacturing technique uses a process similar to newspaper printing to form smoother and more flexible metals for making ultrafast electronic devices.

The low-cost process, developed by Purdue University researchers, combines tools already used in industry for manufacturing metals on a large scale, but uses...

Im Focus: First evidence on the source of extragalactic particles

For the first time ever, scientists have determined the cosmic origin of highest-energy neutrinos. A research group led by IceCube scientist Elisa Resconi, spokesperson of the Collaborative Research Center SFB1258 at the Technical University of Munich (TUM), provides an important piece of evidence that the particles detected by the IceCube neutrino telescope at the South Pole originate from a galaxy four billion light-years away from Earth.

To rule out other origins with certainty, the team led by neutrino physicist Elisa Resconi from the Technical University of Munich and multi-wavelength...

Im Focus: Magnetic vortices: Two independent magnetic skyrmion phases discovered in a single material

For the first time a team of researchers have discovered two different phases of magnetic skyrmions in a single material. Physicists of the Technical Universities of Munich and Dresden and the University of Cologne can now better study and understand the properties of these magnetic structures, which are important for both basic research and applications.

Whirlpools are an everyday experience in a bath tub: When the water is drained a circular vortex is formed. Typically, such whirls are rather stable. Similar...

Im Focus: Breaking the bond: To take part or not?

Physicists working with Roland Wester at the University of Innsbruck have investigated if and how chemical reactions can be influenced by targeted vibrational excitation of the reactants. They were able to demonstrate that excitation with a laser beam does not affect the efficiency of a chemical exchange reaction and that the excited molecular group acts only as a spectator in the reaction.

A frequently used reaction in organic chemistry is nucleophilic substitution. It plays, for example, an important role in in the synthesis of new chemical...

Im Focus: New 2D Spectroscopy Methods

Optical spectroscopy allows investigating the energy structure and dynamic properties of complex quantum systems. Researchers from the University of Würzburg present two new approaches of coherent two-dimensional spectroscopy.

"Put an excitation into the system and observe how it evolves." According to physicist Professor Tobias Brixner, this is the credo of optical spectroscopy....
