Clearstream's Vestima+ attracts BBVA as key new customer

(PresseBox) (Frankfurt am Main, )
Clearstream announced that Banco Bilbao Vizcaya Argentaria (BBVA) has signed up to implement the innovative new investment service called Vestima+. BBVA is Spain's biggest bank and has been a strong proponent of the open architecture model that is a key element of Clearstream's new service. Clearstream launched the Vestima+ service as planned on 24 January 2005.

The Vestima+ service is targeting the costly order processing difficulties within the industry and delivers a new form of market infrastructure that delivers high straight-through processing (STP) rates and enables participants to choose their own post-trade infrastructure. Through using the Vestima+ service BBVA foresees direct operational efficiency benefits.

The service is initially targeting the differing needs of each of Europe's main domestic markets beginning with France and Germany and the international market centered in Luxembourg and Ireland, and will provide a single solution for multiple fund markets.

Numerous market participants have opted to adopt Vestima+ as the flexibility enables selection of their preferred settlement routes and custody providers. The key evolution is the order-routing platform that delivers high STP rates and enables customers to settle delivery-versus-payment (DVP) from their existing accounts wherever they are located.

Roberto Vicario, Deputy General Manager, BBVA stated, "Clearstream's Vestima+ service is the only available solution that meets our STP needs with high flexibility. It will enable us to speed up our time to market by using an easy to implement hub for our international fund distribution business. We see the benefits accruing from increased STP rates close to 100 percent and a reduction of the multiplicity of bilateral connections to a continually increasing number of fund management companies."

Volker Potthoff, Managing Director Banking & Custody Services at Clearstream added, "We welcome BBVA as a fund distributor joining our new Vestima+ fund service. We strongly believe that the fund market needs the same level of automation, security in settlement and traceability that other securities markets enjoy. By combining our Vestima+ flexibility with customer's existing systems, we are enabling our customers to reach that goal and maximise the benefits."
