Asset services

Our full custody service in Europe provides direct connections to the local CSDs in Belgium, the Netherlands, France, Germany, United Kingdom, Switzerland and internationally into Clearstream. All connections are managed from our  operations platform in Amsterdam, enabling us to provide custody services for these markets from one central platform, under a single legal contract. Our global custody services are based on a network of selected local custodians covering 50 markets, alongside our direct connections to most of the local CSDs relevant to our business.

Custody services in the US and Asia-Pacific are performed from our clearing platform, as mostly related to on-exchange transactions. Similar to the set up in Europe, our regional operations teams have access to the local CSD to enhance processing efficiency.
