Ausmaq CEO, Ravi Subramaniam, said, “Today’s announcement is the beginning of an exciting new chapter for Ausmaq. We’re thrilled to be joining an organisation of Clearstream’s calibre – a recognised global leader in post-trade services. Our clients can expect to receive the same exemplary service that they’ve become accustomed to over the years, with increases in the service offering to be introduced over time.” 

Completion of the sale is subject to customary closing conditions including regulatory approval and is expected to be finalised in the next few months.
