Cross-border

The mutual funds market operates globally with funds managed in one domicile being distributed globally into multiple distribution markets.

Calastone’s cross-border solution enhances a client’s existing offering by giving distributors more flexible and cost effective ways of placing trades into cross-border funds.

This automated solution will improve the efficiency of our offering to intermediaries as we continue to enhance our coverage of the intermediary market across Europe.
