South Africa : STANDARD BANK to use CAPLIN'S new web trading solution for single-dealer platform.

Standard Bank's corporate and investment banking division has selected Caplin Systems Ltd for the provision of the framework for its new single-dealer platform (SDP).

Standard Bank decided to offer both its customers and its own traders with a scalable next generation web-based platform complete with prices, analysis and the ability to execute in multiple asset classes, as many bank s corporate and institutional clients wanting more sophisticated electronic trading and other online services.

The growth of the internet in Africa determined that online was the only way to go, but we needed to be able to handle the diverse infrastructure capabilities of Developing and Developed markets. We evaluated several technologies but decided on Caplin Trader as it offered a cost effective solution that lets us build a high-performance robust SDP that s designed to minimise network traffic and provide excellent resilience, said James Nicolson, Standard Bank s Head of eCommerce IT (Corporate and Investment Banking).

The project will make use of Caplin s new HTML5 web trading solution called Caplin Trader 3, by which bank will be able to develop sophisticated, highly differentiated online trading offerings that work across desktop and mobile platforms.

The project will bring in the expertise of Caplin Professional Services and be implemented by a 12-person combined Caplin/Standard Bank team. FX and Precious Metals are planned to be the first asset classes of the multi-asset portal to be launched during 2013 and will be initially used for spot, forwards, swaps and orders.

The Standard Bank project will demonstrate how a small team can use a software framework to deliver a fully functioning web trading application quickly and cost effectively. We re delighted to be working with such a prestigious client in the African financial market, and look forward to our successful collaboration, said Paul Caplin, founder and CEO of Caplin Systems.
