Deutsche Bank said that it will showcase its new Liquidity Manager app and over 150 other apps at this year’s Sibos conference, being held in Osaka, Japan from 29 October to 1 November.
The Liquidity Manager allows clients to access and manage daily liquidity analysis, planning and management processes in one convenient location. The app also improves the accuracy of local and worldwide forecasting, improves the transparency into branch account positions and centralises control of liquidity management through shared views and workflows. It is part of the bank’s Autobahn App Market, the first app-based electronic offering for clients in the financial services industry, claims the bank.
