Slashing industry costs

We estimate that over £3.4bn of cost is lost each year during the investment process, which could be saved through our common, shared market infrastructure.

Great strides are being made in the mutual fund industry to achieve greater efficiencies and STP. We took the decision to connect to Calastone because we believe that our clients will benefit from more choice.

The future starts with asking why

If something doesn’t work, then change it. That’s the spark that ignites Calastone. We’ve made it our mission to help the funds industry transform. To find innovative new ways to automate and streamline the global funds marketplace and reduce frictional costs for the benefit of all.

We’re not afraid of change. Real progress only comes when you challenge the status quo.

We started by asking why so much of an investment gets lost in the process. And when we couldn’t find an answer that satisfied us, we created the Calastone Transaction Network, a way to communicate electronically and automate order routing. This slashed industry costs overnight and created a new benchmark. It was ground-breaking. Resilient. Globally scalable. We saw the difference it made and it inspired us to want to do more.

Now with the Distributed Market Infrastructure, we are poised on the edge of an exciting new era. Distributed ledger technology will enable us to extend the benefits of digitalisation across the industry and drive a revolution in how asset management operates.

We are ready. We won’t stop until everyone is seamlessly connected on a new marketplace. Until the asset management industry is fully automated, globally connected and frictionless. Re-energised with all market participants empowered to evolve their business models, enabling scale to innovate and innovation to scale. Delivering more value back to the end investor.

This is the future. And it starts with asking why.
