The regulatory framework, the expertise of our staff and a modern technical infrastructure underpin the high flexibility of the services provided by the Capital Market unit in Luxembourg.
Capital Markets Luxembourg focuses on the funding and operational management of the liquidity of all Luxembourg entities and on managing the interest rate, basic and foreign exchange risks resulting from the business transactions booked in Luxembourg.
Capital Markets Luxembourg actively supports the repo activities of the parent company. It implements complex structured long-term repo transactions in order to use the securities available at the Branch - mostly structured assets (ABS, CLOs, etc.) - for optimum Bank-wide funding.
The local Capital Markets unit funds the portfolios booked in Luxembourg from Bank-wide liquidity flows, a Multi-Currency Euro Commercial Paper Programme, its own market contacts as well as from trust deposits arranged by other banks.
The Capital Markets activities as well as the liquidity management of the loan and securities portfolios booked in Luxembourg are performed by staff of the Luxembourg Branch of HSH Nordbank AG.
As a result of the cross-entity and cross-locational cooperation in 2012, an automated platform for the parent company’s Sales unit was established for the investment of client funds. This allows clients of HSH Nordbank AG to benefit from the advantages of the Luxembourg location.
