CACEIS Bank Deutschland – Payments Landscape

NTT DATA established full and reliable access to all payment and settlement systems for CACEIS Bank Deutschland. Thus the bank could start operating as full bank with the complete range of asset services.

The French CACEIS Bank wanted to establish an independent bank in Germany with a full banking licence. This required access to German, European and international bulk credit transfers and bulk payment transactions, including liquidity management.

The most important requirements

  • Access to payment clearing systems – specifically to EMZ, STEP2, SEPA and TARGET2 
  • Connection to SWIFT 
  • Development of a correspondent bank network 

In all applications emphasis was put on optimum connections to the treasury department and to the securities systems (e.g. Clearstream and Eurex) because the core business is processed through them. 

Project success

Full, reliable access to all payment systems was set up. This allowed CACEIS Bank Germany to begin operating as a full bank with a complete range of asset services.
