RBS Global Banking & Markets has announced a comprehensive suite of design enhancements to its leading electronic trading platform, RBSMarketplace (RBSM). The new release fuses pre-trade, trade execution and post-trade services while also enabling users to customise their default settings, leveraging the scale of RBS’s electronic trading business across different markets. RBSMarketplace now boasts significant improvements to its functionality and trading capability in addition to navigation enhancements for a superior user experience. The platform also hosts RBS Agile™, a new derivative algorithm that enables clients to automate their gamma hedging.
Commenting on the rationale behind the latest developments, Roger Hawes, Global Head of FICC E-Commerce, said: “The time has come for differentiation. We were confident we already had a competitive product but having listened carefully to client feedback, we have focused this delivery more on the user experience. We believe one simple interface, more visual graphics, easier navigation and new integrated tools all contribute to RBSMarketplace offering its clients a comprehensive, user-friendly application which reflects their needs.”.
