The two companies said that under the partnership Bellin customers will be offered an efficient market data service unique to the industry and fully integrated into the tm5 treasury management system (TMS) by Bellin. They added that further joint projects are planned for the future.

“The decisive advantage of this partnership is the large number of high-quality interest and exchange rates which our customers will be able to receive rapidly, reliably and directly in our treasury management system,” added Martin Bellin, group founder and managing director.
