Vestima provides a single entry point and standardised process for all fund transactions - from mutual funds to exchange-traded funds (ETFs) and hedge funds – and one fully-integrated set of reports and connectivity media.

With more than 230,000 investment funds from 55 jurisdictions, Vestima is the world’s largest cross-border fund processing platform.

Efficiency gains 

Clients of our Vestima platform realise efficiency gains through automation. Operational efficiency is significantly increased through DVP settlement, the synchronous exchange of cash and investment fund shares. Automation is a powerful tool in the investment funds sector where many companies still rely on faxes and phone calls.

Risk mitigation

Apart from improving efficiency and automation in the funds sector, clients are increasingly looking to Clearstream to bolster the security of their financial infrastructure.

Asset safety has also become a key concern among participants in the investment fund industry. This is a reflection of recent developments on the regulatory agenda, such as the implementation of the Alternative Investment Fund Manager Directive (AIFMD).

Centralised solutions, such as Vestima, can serve the growing need for greater efficiency and transparency in investment funds processing, in order to comply with regulatory developments and new rules on risk mitigation.
