Die Einzahlungen resultieren aus der Abnahme der Wertpapiere des Finanzanlage- und Umlaufvermögens.

I'd be grateful for the entire sentence.

decline in securities held as non-trading or current assets
Explanation:
I assume this is a follow-up to earlier questions related to a cash flow statement; therefore, 'Einzahlungen' refers to cash inflows rather than a cash deposit.

=> "The cash inflow was a result of a decline in securities held as non-trading or current assets."

Note that the translation of "Finanzanlagen" depends on the accounting rules applicable; the proposal shown would be correct under IAS or HGB, whereas US GAAP would probably use "investment securities".

Thanks so much, Ralf! I was wondering if you could point me to a good online dictionary (German-English) for financial terms. I have several dictionaries, but none of them contain lengthy terms. My e-mail address is orixen@t-online.de. Thanks again!
