Clearstream’s Vestima+ attracts BBVA as key new customer

01.02.2005

Clearstream announced that Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) has signed up to implement the innovative new investment service called Vestima+. BBVA is Spain’s biggest bank and has been a strong proponent of the open architecture model that is a key element of Clearstream’s new service. Clearstream launched the Vestima+ service as planned on 24 January 2005.

The Vestima+ service is targeting the costly order processing difficulties within the industry and delivers a new form of market infrastructure that delivers high straight-through processing (STP) rates and enables participants to choose their own post-trade infrastructure. Through using the Vestima+ service BBVA foresees direct operational efficiency benefits.

The service is initially targeting the differing needs of each of Europe’s main domestic markets beginning with France and Germany and the international market centered in Luxembourg and Ireland, and will provide a single solution for multiple fund markets.

Numerous market participants have opted to adopt Vestima+ as the flexibility enables selection of their preferred settlement routes and custody providers. The key evolution is the order-routing platform that delivers high STP rates and enables customers to settle delivery-versus-payment (DVP) from their existing accounts wherever they are located.

Roberto Vicario, Deputy General Manager, BBVA stated, "Clearstream’s Vestima+ service is the only available solution that meets our STP needs with high flexibility. It will enable us to speed up our time to market by using an easy to implement hub for our international fund distribution business. We see the benefits accruing from increased STP rates close to 100 percent and a reduction of the multiplicity of bilateral connections to a continually increasing number of fund management companies."

Volker Potthoff, Managing Director Banking & Custody Services at Clearstream added, "We welcome BBVA as a fund distributor joining our new Vestima+ fund service. We strongly believe that the fund market needs the same level of automation, security in settlement and traceability that other securities markets enjoy. By combining our Vestima+ flexibility with customer’s existing systems, we are enabling our customers to reach that goal and maximise the benefits."

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
