Vontobel’s Multi Issuer Platform „mein-zertifikat.de” to cooperate with Börse Frankfurt and exchange portal operator ARIVA.DE
From 6 April 2017, investment advisors at banks and savings banks, asset managers and interested private investors in Germany will also be able to create investment certificates online via the investor portals ‘boerse-frankfurt.de’ and ‘ariva.de’, with no strings attached, and buy them a few minutes later on the Frankfurt stock exchange. To deliver this service, Börse Frankfurt Zertifikate AG and ARIVA.DE are integrating Vontobel’s Multi Issuer Platform „mein-zertifikat.de” into their portals. Vontobel has launched corresponding cooperation arrangements with both these operators of leading German investor portals.
“Our cooperation with ‘boerse-frankfurt.de’ and ‘ariva.de’ will give investors additional integrated access to the Multi Issuer Platform ‘mein-zertifikat.de’, which was launched successfully in 2016. This marks a further important step in the transformation from the existing supplier-led market to a demand-driven market for bespoke investment products in Germany, where investors are given comparable prices for their individual solutions and thus enjoy a high level of transparency,” said Kristijan Tomic, Head Distribution Europe, Platform Solutions at Vontobel.
With the launch of „mein-zertifikat.de” at the end of August 2016, Vontobel became the first provider in Germany to introduce a fintech solution that allows investment advisors at banks and savings banks, asset managers and interested private investors in Germany to create bespoke investment certificates and reverse convertibles on any exchange trading day – with no strings attached – with the issuer of their choice, and to then buy these a few minutes later on the Frankfurt stock exchange. This web-based service is free of charge, and there is no minimum purchase requirement.
Two of the leading issuers of investment certificates in Germany – Vontobel and HSBC Trinkaus & Burkhardt AG – are currently offering their products via the Multi Issuer Platform. This is to be expanded with the addition of further issuers, and the ultimate goal is for it to become the industry standard in Germany. The platform has been developed specifically for the German market on the basis of Vontobel’s tried-and-tested deritrade® technology, which has a long-standing and successful track record in Switzerland.
boerse-frankfurt.de is the investor portal of Deutsche Börse Group and offers access to real-time prices for all tradable securities. The portal provides investors and interested visitors with the latest financial market news, and background information on the exchange, trading and the individual asset classes.
ARIVA.DE was founded in 1998 as one of the first stock exchange portals, and now ranks among the leading bank-independent financial portals in the German market. In addition to its own financial portal, ARIVA.DE offers regulatory services (including PIBs, PRIIP KIDs and MiFID) that have been used successfully by leading banks and exchanges for many years.
