Why Calastone?

By connecting to the world’s largest global fund transaction network, clients immediately benefit from all that automation has to offer

Helping the industry interoperate

Much of the funds market continue to use manual processes to make transactions. Such processes are proven to be expensive, cumbersome and prevent firms from driving benefit through the investment chain. These are inefficient and expose firms to risk through duplication and inaccuracy. Calastone provides a one-to-many alternative connectivity network that reduces cost, risk and improves transparency through real-time visibility, irrespective of a firm’s role, size or location.

With just one connection to our network firms can transact with any counterparty and in any message format. There is no need to upgrade existing infrastructure or incur any upfront costs. Operating an entirely open and interoperable network, we offer clients a range of options to process their messages, such as SWIFT, FIX, MQ, Web Services, SFTP, JMS, Connect Direct and HTTPS. We also support standard message formats ISO20022 or ISO15022, including the range of FIX protocols, and an extensive range of proprietary formats.

Operational excellence

Be secure in the knowledge that you’re in good hands from the moment you begin implementation, with support across international markets and time zones.

Our Operations Team are committed to supporting all of our clients and ensuring smooth processing of messages across our global transaction network. Our support services are unique in that we not only transmit the order, but also track and manage it throughout the lifecycle.

This enables rapid break fix, and in many cases the avoidance of the incident entirely. Over 95% of enquiries raised are resolved at first point of contact. You can learn more about what our customers have to say about us here.
