Standard Life Investments goes live on Calastone settlements service
Global fund transaction network Calastone has revealed that Standard Life Investments (SLI) is live on its automated funds settlement solution.
Before Aberdeen Asset Management’s £11 billion merger with Standard Life, the Aberdeen Unit Trust Managers Limited (AUTM) was already live on Calastone’s settlement service.
Now, with its adoption of the solution, SLI will be able to support fully automated, electronic straight-through processing (STP).
According to Calastone, it’s the only commercial settlement system designed specifically for the funds industry. The solution automatically matches trades and calculates the net settlement position between each trading counterparty.
Like a rolling Calastone
This year and the last, Calastone has been busy.
In the same year, Calastone joined the Linux Foundation’s Hyperledger Project. It was one of 30 members from across the fintech space to have joined this blockchain initiative.
Lately, in June 2017, Calastone completed the first phase of its blockchain project.
