Calastone is an independent cross-border messaging network for the mutual fund industry, automating key business flow processes and delivering Straight Through Processing (STP) efficiencies throughout the entire lifecycle, from mutual fund trading, through to settlement.
Developed using the latest Microsoft technologies, Calastone provides clients with the ability to view their transactions online, in real-time, through an execution management system.
Tony Klim, CEO of Bravura in EMEA, said: “We are extremely pleased to be working with Calastone. This collaboration will enable our clients to achieve the full benefits of STP with Calastone’s distribution clients. The initial deployment supports order messages and will enable our clients to process trades electronically from the Calastone network.”
“We can now provide a cost effective solution to our clients wishing to connect to the Calastone transaction network, building further on our leading position as a provider of STP financial messaging through Bravura’s Babel software application.”
Kevin Lee, managing director of Calastone, said: “We are pleased to partner with Bravura. Both Bravura and Calastone clients are able to remove manual order entry processing, which will reduce costs and risk, and provide greater visibility and control of order routing.”
