Our New issues teams – accepting over 1 million new securities per year at Euroclear Bank - act as a ‘gateway to Euroclear’, an access point through which issuers can reach their investors. It is also our gateway to the world, where we first feel the impact of important economic and political changes.
When the issuer pays interests, dividends or reimburses the loan, our Income teams ensures the correct information is provided to investors and processes tens of billions of EUR worth in payments on a daily basis.
Whenever an issuer decides – or is forced to - to restructure its debt, organize a general meeting, merge with another company… our Corporate Actions teams will be actively involved to meet the issuers needs and ensure the interests of the investor are properly served.
Our Tax teams work together with investors, tax and other authorities (e.g. the European Union) to ensure tax legislation is correctly implemented and applied. Thus ensuring governments receive billions of EUR worth of taxes, while ensuring investors can benefit from the tax reductions and exemptions they are entitled to.
While our Reconciliation and Investigation Teams deal with solving some of the most complex issues the market confronts us with.
