Barclays Capital, the investment banking division of Barclays Bank, has selected Caplin Trader, a web-based application platform, to be used in Barclays’s fixed income e-commerce offering.
Caplin Trader enables customers build multi-product financial trading portals. Users can have trading access to a range of instruments via a single web front-end.
Caplin Trader delivers a trading screen direct to users’ desktops. Users can access the Caplin Trader Client from any major browser. Caplin Trader incorporates a rich internet application (RIA) that enables financial institutions to offer multi-asset online trading in a browser. The drag-and-drop Ajax front-end enables end-users to create individual screen layouts to their exact requirements, and the configurable trade model makes it easy to roll out new products, said Caplin Systems.
Harry Harrison, managing director and global head of fixed income flow trading at Barclays Capital, said: We are constantly striving to improve upon our acclaimed technology to deliver the best possible service to our clients. Caplin Trader complements our strategy around performance and distribution, and we expect to see the benefits very quickly.
Paul Caplin, CEO of Caplin Systems, said: We have been delighted with the take up of Caplin Trader since its launch in May 2007. Our expanding raft of blue-chip clients is a great endorsement of the quality of our technology.
