Cleastream International is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Deutsche Boerse, formed from the January 2000 merger of Cedel International and Deutsche Boerse Clearing. The business provides a variety of post-trade services, such as issuance, settlement, securities financing and general custodian banking.[1]

Clearstream has €13 trillion in assets under custody with more than 2,500 customers in 110 countries.[2]


Clearstream has many forerunners, but the main two are Deutsche Boerse Clearing and Cedel International. Deutsche Boerse Clearing was formerly Auslandskassenverein, the German Central Foreign Securities Depository, and Deutscher Kassenverein, the German Central Securities Depository, until 1996, when those entities merged.[3][4]

The merger of Cedel and Deutsche Boerse Clearing was announced in January 2000 and completed in 2002.[5]
