My client were founded in the year 2000 and have been helping investment banks, online brokers and other financial firms to build single-dealer platforms for over a decade. In 1999, they created the first ever web server specifically designed for real-time financial data, enabling the company to build some of the very first single-dealer platforms for investment banks.
The use of single-dealer platforms has risen particularly in the past five years as banks have realised the benefits of being able to distribute market data to their customers in real time via a standard web browser, and to offer research, pre-trade analysis, pricing and trading in one or more asset classes. Their technology is used worldwide by banks such as Citi, RBS, Standard Bank and UniCredit.
