Clearstream acquires a majority stake in the fund distribution platform Fondcenter, integrating it into its investment fund services business.
As a market infrastructure provider, we at Clearstream have helped shape markets over the past 50 years, as they have grown more interconnected, complex and digital. Throughout the years, our core tasks remain the same: fostering the efficiency, stability and integrity of financial markets.
Clearstream’s automated issuance platform eMission – well established in the German CSD infrastructure – serves as the heart of the European Issuer Portal providing high-volume, cross-border, multi-currency and multi-asset type solutions to reflect today’s capital market dynamics.
Scale is key for success in the platform space, alongside a broad product and geographical coverage. Pressure on costs has placed a premium on transparency and efficiency in the fund distribution segment. Funds Europe, in association with Clearstream, surveyed the industry.
