ABN AMRO Clearing Bank’s Launch of New Fractional Investment Infrastructure

NautaDutilh advised ABN AMRO Clearing Bank on the deal.

ABN AMRO Clearing Bank (AACB) recently launched a new trading service to allow fractional investment by end clients. BUX is the first broker to make use of this infrastructure. Fractional investing means buying a part or fraction of a share rather than the entire share.

Clients of brokers such as BUX were already able to make investments through an account with AACB. End-client funds are held in separate blockchain bank accounts, based on the Banking as a Service (BaaS) platform launched by AACB a few years ago. With the introduction of the new infrastructure, end clients can now buy and sell both full shares and fractions of shares from their accounts. An innovative cloud-based administration system ensures that AACB does not need to purchase more than one (full) share per fund.

NautaDutilh’s team consisted of Sven Uiterwijk (Picture) and Marlot Cuppen.
