A group of some of the biggest banks and blue-chip companies in the Nordic region has chosen SuperDerivatives’ derivatives front office trading platform to help them manage their derivatives portfolios and execute derivatives online.
Companies including Nordea, Danske Bank, SEB, Handelsbanken, DnBNOR, Carnegie, FIH Erhevsbank, Glitnir, Landsbanki, A.P. Moller Maersk and Western Bulk Carriers have become part of SuperDerivatives’ network of global counterparties and derivatives execution, the vendor said last week.
They are using a range of SuperDerivatives’ products including real-time multi-asset pricing and analytics, risk management systems, portfolio revaluation services, and mark-to-market data portal for pricing derivatives.
Derivatives use across Denmark, Finland, Iceland, Norway and Sweden has soared over the last decade, as the region’s economy has undergone rapid growth. In 2007, Norway’s economy alone grew 6%, outpacing any other Western nation.
SuperDerivatives provides real-time, independent pricing for a range of derivatives covering currencies, commodities, interest rates, equities and credit derivatives. Its execution platform allows institutions to trade derivatives online, from simple vanilla options to complex multi-leg structures. The platform is used either internally between sales and traders or externally between institutions.
