The solution integrates with the bank’s in-house back office trading platforms and is designed to enable the bank’s clients to trade bonds, interest rate swaps and euro medium term notes (EMTNs) via a single intuitive interface. Calyon plans to install Caplin Trader in its Paris office. The solution is an Internet application that will enable the bank to offer sophisticated online pricing and trading functionality. The advanced drag-and-drop Ajax front-end makes it easy for end-users to create individual screen layouts to their exact requirements. The solution can be accessed from any standard web browser, with nothing to install and no changes to security settings or firewalls required.
