Our Tasks:

  • We process investors' instructions for the settlement of securities transactions, having been placed on the stock exchange or over-the-counter.
  • We coordinate payments to investors to settle their claims to issuers.

In order to provide you with the latest state-of-the-art technique we have built the “Issuer Platform”. Please find a short video clip explaining the key facts here (in German). Link to the video
