Distributors

The ability to access a full range of funds while making sure the investment process is accurate and transparent has never been more important.

With our drive for innovation and automation, we are streamlining the investment process – while providing access to the world’s largest network of investment and liquidity funds, transfer agents and custodians.

Through our Distributed Market Infrastructure, distributors and institutional investors benefit from distributed ledger technology, simplifying the way they connect and communicate with their counterparties. We digitalise the end-to-end investment and reporting process, cutting costs and improving reporting accuracy and speed.

Distributors can focus their resources on delivering value to investors by speeding up the reconciliation process and delivering more timely and accurate reporting using real-time fund data. They are able to manage their positions and forecast their liquidity requirements with greater accuracy.

Our leading global coverage lets distributors expand their service offering across more locations, enabling them to meet the growing cross-border needs of fund managers directly.

Institutional investors

Calastone’s Money Market Services (MMS) helps companies, public sector organisations and financial institutions balance their security, liquidity and yield objectives when investing surplus cash.

Our fully automated trade process with integrated reporting and settlement digitalises the end-to-end process. It eliminates the risk inherent in manual processing still evident at every stage of the transaction chain, while potentially reducing the cost of the asset class.
