Last month we proudly introduced our new structured products service in collaboration with Novia and Investec. For the first time, customers’ structured product transactions can now be fully automated which marks another significant step forward for the funds industry.
Until now, the only way in which structured products orders could be processed was manually, which required a forced aggregation of tickets. Now, not only can the cost of order processing be reduced, but also the inherent risks involved in this required ticket aggregation can be lowered. Firms can aggregate or disaggregate their trades into the structured product vehicle as they prefer, offering improved flexibility for our customers.
We have been very encouraged by the early feedback about the new structured products service, and look forward to announcing new clients as they sign up. We could not have delivered this without our pilot customers, and really appreciate the time and effort dedicated to helping us launch the service.
Calastone is the only interoperable global transaction network. We provide automated mutual fund processing in any message format and standard, freeing customers to effortlessly transact in a manner best suited to their business. As part of our continued proactive industry and customer engagement, we regularly engage with our customers at our User Groups. During our London event last month we invited customers to offer insights and suggestions and have already started reviewing the themes and topics. More will follow, so watch this space!
