Deutsche Börse’s Post-Trade Business Clearstream to Invest in FinTech Startup Digital Vault Services

Clearstream, Deutsche Börse’s post-trade business is investing an undisclosed amount in the fintech start-up Digital Vault Services (DVS).

Deutsche Börse, one of Europe’s biggest exchange operators, said the Clearstream investment is subject to applicable regulatory approvals and finalization of legal documentation.

The funding will be used by Digital Vault Services to broaden its offering as a market infrastructure solution for corporates and financial institutions. The investment will be part of an exchange for a minority stake in Digital Vault Services and is expected to be completed in the second half of 2024, subject to regulatory approval.

Once completed Digital Vault Services “Guarantee Vault” will be combined with D7, the digital post-trade platform of Deutsche Börse and Clearstream. This allows D7 to expand its digital asset product portfolio to non-securities.

“Digital leadership is a central part of Deutsche Börse Group’s Horizon 2026 strategy,” said Jens Hachmeister, head of issuer services and new digital markets at Clearstream, in a press release.

“We are convinced that DVS’s innovative approach to digital bank guarantees, combined with D7’s track record in digitising securities and Clearstream’s central role in global financial markets, will drive significant growth and deliver value for our clients and ultimately the entire financial industry,” adds Hachmeister.
