Philip Brown, head of global client relations and member of the executive board of Clearstream, says: “This year has started well – our record of EUR12.0trn assets held under custody on behalf of our customers is a sign of continued strength in our asset volumes. We are experiencing increases across all our business areas, be it the number of transactions we are processing or the volumes derived from our global securities financing and investment funds services business areas. This all stands us in good stead to keep confidently executing our business strategy – in particular, 2014 will be a year of market readiness for us to help customers and the market gear up to TARGET2-Securities, as the T2S 2015 go-live date draws closer.”
