Euroclear achieves record-breaking H1 collateral volume


Post-trade service provider Euroclear saw "record levels" of collateral outstanding through its Collateral Highway in the first half of 2017.

Collateral volume reached €1155 billion by June, representing an increase of 14 percent from the previous year.

Euroclear’s fund assets under custody also grew by 15 percent, which the firm attributed to progress its funds strategy.

Its asset under safekeeping increased by 5 percent to €28.4 trillion during the same period.

Lieve Mostrey, who took over as Euroclear CEO in January, said: “Financial market conditions have been supportive to date, with record levels of client activity, and we reached record levels of collateral outstanding on Collateral Highway.”

“Euroclear is accelerating its investments in both regulation-driven initiatives and cyber security, while continuing to develop its offering for clients globally.”
