Clearstream successfully launches Vestima+ Funds

24.01.2005


Widespread market support expected to grow in 2005 as coverage expands

Clearstream announced on Monday that it has successfully launched its new Vestima+ Investment Funds service and that transactions in international markets were flowing as expected following an implementation project over the weekend.

The Vestima+ service is targeting the differing needs of each of Europe’s main domestic distributors and provides a single solution for multiple fund markets. The main features of the service include near-100-percent straight-through processing (STP) and the ability for fund distributors to select their preferred settlement mode, delivery versus payment (DVP) or free of payment (FOP) and to choose their own optimal settlement route and custody providers. Clearstream is now evaluating expanding the service to other markets such as Italy and the UK.

The benefits of the service and the open settlement model have been readily accepted by many major market participants with a steady stream of organizations signing up for the service throughout the last year. This trend is expected to continue and will create important automated volumes in domestic markets as cost efficiency benefits of over 50 percent are possible.

Clearstream has worked with market participants to design the service enabling customers to leverage their existing domestic infrastructures in order to reach the highest cost reductions level. Through Vestima+, and for the first time in the fund market, customers can select wherever they wish to settle and whether to use or not Clearstream’s integrated settlement and custody services.

Jeffrey Tessler, CEO of Clearstream International stated, "The success of the Vestima+ launch represents the first milestone of a collaborative process of working with market participants to create a solution that meets their needs. As a result, the service is open, unique, innovative and delivers cost-efficiency where our customers need it most. Now we will look forward to expanding its market coverage."

Im Focus: Can we see monkeys from space? Emerging technologies to map biodiversity

An international team of scientists has proposed a new multi-disciplinary approach in which an array of new technologies will allow us to map biodiversity and the risks that wildlife is facing at the scale of whole landscapes. The findings are published in Nature Ecology and Evolution. This international research is led by the Kunming Institute of Zoology from China, University of East Anglia, University of Leicester and the Leibniz Institute for Zoo and Wildlife Research.

Using a combination of satellite and ground data, the team proposes that it is now possible to map biodiversity with an accuracy that has not been previously...

Im Focus: Climate satellite: Tracking methane with robust laser technology

Heatwaves in the Arctic, longer periods of vegetation in Europe, severe floods in West Africa – starting in 2021, scientists want to explore the emissions of the greenhouse gas methane with the German-French satellite MERLIN. This is made possible by a new robust laser system of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT in Aachen, which achieves unprecedented measurement accuracy.

Methane is primarily the result of the decomposition of organic matter. The gas has a 25 times greater warming potential than carbon dioxide, but is not as...

Im Focus: How protons move through a fuel cell

Hydrogen is regarded as the energy source of the future: It is produced with solar power and can be used to generate heat and electricity in fuel cells. Empa researchers have now succeeded in decoding the movement of hydrogen ions in crystals – a key step towards more efficient energy conversion in the hydrogen industry of tomorrow.

As charge carriers, electrons and ions play the leading role in electrochemical energy storage devices and converters such as batteries and fuel cells. Proton...

Im Focus: A unique data centre for cosmological simulations

Scientists from the Excellence Cluster Universe at the Ludwig-Maximilians-Universität Munich have establised "Cosmowebportal", a unique data centre for cosmological simulations located at the Leibniz Supercomputing Centre (LRZ) of the Bavarian Academy of Sciences. The complete results of a series of large hydrodynamical cosmological simulations are available, with data volumes typically exceeding several hundred terabytes. Scientists worldwide can interactively explore these complex simulations via a web interface and directly access the results.

With current telescopes, scientists can observe our Universe’s galaxies and galaxy clusters and their distribution along an invisible cosmic web. From the...
