On 29 August, ECSDA released the 2015 CSD Factbook, offering an up-to-date overview of the CSD landscape in Europe. The latest facts and figures show a steady increase in the value of securities held on CSD accounts since 2011 and a relatively stable number of securities deliveries compared to 2014.
In 2015, European CSDs collectively processed around 473 million delivery instructions. This number excludes MKK, the Turkish CSD, which alone processed 171 million instructions. In terms of value, these delivery instructions represented over EUR 1.15 quadrillion, slightly below 2014 settlement volumes.
The Factbook further includes information on CSDs’ corporate structures, client base and services.
