This mandate further extends the relationship between Clearstream and BNP Paribas Securities Services, which already includes local clearing and custody across the Euronext and Turkish markets.
By adding BNP Paribas Securities Services as local sub-custodian, Clearstream will continue to provide services in Australia and New Zealand, as part of its international network, through which market participants have access to investment opportunities across 58 markets worldwide. Via its Clearstream Australia subsidiary, international and domestic investors also receive support and access to Australian and international investment funds.
Samuel Riley, Head of Investor Services & Financing at Clearstream, said:
“We are delighted to partner with BNP Paribas Securities Services as our new sub-custodian in Australia and New Zealand. This important step further cements Clearstream’s position in the APAC region to enable safe and efficient investment opportunities, driving the growth of the domestic capital markets.
“Together with our recently opened Clearstream Australia subsidiary, this new partnership gives us the best conditions to serve our local customers and international customers investing in this thriving region. We look forward to this joint undertaking.”
