DZ Bank, the fifth largest bank in Germany, is extending its usage of icubic beyond internal trading processes by rolling out iMarket at its Frankfurt headquarters. iMarket is an electronic trading platform that enables the workflow of customer-facing electronic trading processes. The bank has been an icubic customer since 2002 and traders in Frankfurt and London already use iQbonds, icubic’s end-to-end e-trading solution. Carsten Ames, project manager, DZ Bank, said: “As the cooperation with icubic has been very successful in the past, it was a logical step for us to extend the roll out of icubic’s product set beyond iQbonds to take in our customer-facing trade processes.”
