The collaboration means that fund management companies and distributors in the Swedish market will get access to a fully secure order management in real time, together with a full automation and digitalisation of the entire fund order flow.

 
 

‘Our vision back when the company was founded remains the same today - to streamline and digitalise the finance industry and the asset management processes. Today, we are particularly focused on the fund market and the fund management companies’ order flows. By linking up and integrating Euroclear Sweden’s and Wahlstedt Sageryd’s systems to deliver an automated fund order flow, we are taking yet another step towards a more secure and more efficient fund market,’ says Linnéa Wahlstedt, CEO of the Wahlstedt Sageryd Group.

Wahlstedt Sageryd and Euroclear Sweden can now offer their customers a fully digitalised order flow, removing manual intervention and as such reducing operational risk. Thanks to the automation, transactions now take place in real time, providing fast and efficient trading. Ultimately, this leads to greater transparency and monitoring, in line with changing regulatory requirements, which is a clear request from more and more fund distributors.

‘Through our partnership with Wahlstedt Sageryd, Euroclear Sweden continues to digitalise the Swedish fund market and offers our affiliated fund distributors an even wider selection of funds. Our fund platform enables operators with a range of different system solutions to reach each other using standards. Collaborations of this kind are an important element in the development of Euroclear Sweden's fund service. We will go to market soon with our next client initiative, our automated fund transfer service,’ says Anders Löfgren, Chief Business Development Officer at Euroclear Sweden.
