Clearstream Banking1 informs customers, after being notified by its Greek depository, that the Greek Government Gazette has published that effective

1 September 2019

all capital restrictions that are in place since July 2015 are abolished.

Impact on customers

The following restrictions are no longer applicable to Clearstream Banking’s links to BOGS and ATHEXCSD:

  • In BOGS, free of payment deliveries from Greek participants to foreign participants (for example CBF) are no longer restricted and there is no need to prove that DVP transactions to foreign participants are related to an onward delivery that has already been concluded.
  • In ATHEXCSD, dual-listed shares can be transferred abroad without restrictions.
