We will assist you in transferring securities free of payment  

A complex process and communication landscape currently characterises free-of-payment transfers of securities.

Even receiving accurate delivery instructions from the depository banks is in many cases difficult and time-consuming. Frequent media discontinuity and complex custody structures regularly require manual and separate process steps. This inevitably leads to delays and high susceptibility to errors.

ifsam provides support in this respect with ‘FreeDel’, a web-based communication and information platform. You can connect with everyone involved in a process and quickly as well as efficiently exchange all the required information involving the free-of-payment transfer of securities.

‘FreeDel‘ saves you from having to conduct extensive searches, provides standardised interfaces and supports you with all the common download formats. The system enables you to store standards; to save all documents required in an order and will provide you with an up-to-date overview of your pending transactions.
