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 Europes 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 Clearstreams 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."

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event
On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...
Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.
Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....
Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).
When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...
