Austrian and Spanish government debt-securities trades that are cleared through LCH SA’s RepoClear service, just became possible to settle at Clearstreams international central securities depository, Clearstream Banking. Since earlier, the setup goes for German, French and Belgian government debt.

The details were announced through outlets including a Clearstream press release on Tuesday.

In a Twitter post the same day, LCH said its RepoClear SA business had also connected with Dutch CSD Euroclear Netherlands to enable settlement of Dutch government bonds there.
