The financial markets division of Germany's Landesbank Baden-Württemberg (LBBW) has installed technology from Calypso to support trading in interest rate derivatives and credit derivatives as well as risk analysis and back office processing.
The deployment of the new cross-asset trading platform comes as LBBW looks to grow its capital markets presence through the development of structured products and its corporate derivatives business.
Ralf Winkelmann, head of capital markets, LBBW, says the bank is gearing up to handle increased demand from clients across Europe for innovative financial instruments.
"We needed new systems that could process these complex products, while allowing us to innovate by quickly adding support for new trading instruments as the markets evolve," he says.
