Vestima: Fully embedded into Clearstream’s solid infrastructure

As a market infrastructure, Clearstream ensures the highest standards of safety for customer assets, including asset segregation and DVP settlement. Clearstream’s interaction with fund agents is contractually regulated and depositary banks benefit from reporting on registrars (RMR). Legal opinions on the domiciles of fund registers assure customers that their beneficial ownership is recognised in the markets where their assets are held.

Clearstream’s investment fund services are embedded in the legal, settlement and custody framework of the ICSD. This enables customers to benefit from the Vestima suite of fund services while their holdings in investment fund shares are fully integrated with those in other asset classes.
