We enable financial firms to deliver sophisticated trading services to their clients and staff via the web. Our e-distribution software makes it quick and easy to create single-dealer platforms and other online trading offerings precisely tailored to business needs.
The Caplin e-distribution platform is designed to meet the needs of users of all kinds, and provides an integrated experience across multiple asset classes. We offer a range of pre-packaged offerings, called motifs, each of which provides a powerful set of trading workflows for a particular asset class and trading style. These can be branded, styled, combined, modified and extended without limit, to meet your exact requirements.
We offer three FX motifs: one for professional traders, one for corporate treasurers and one for internal sales people. We also provide an FX trading app designed for phones and tablets. All are based on the best ideas from the most successful FX Trading GUIs, and are ready to go as soon as they are connected to your trading system.
The Caplin equities motif provides the building blocks for a comprehensive equities trading service, including searchable current and historic blotters, a ‘market explorer’ for securities searching and watch-list creation, a market depth display, market and limit order tickets, alerts, and allocations.
The Caplin futures motif is designed for exchange-based futures and options trading, and offers intuitive navigation and instrument discovery, quote tiles, heatmaps, charts, multi-function ladders, deal blotters, position management, spreads, option chains, multi-currency account information, account flattening, alerting, and much more.
The Caplin fixed income motif supports trading of rates and credit with pre-trade analysis, execution and post-trade capabilities, all within a powerful, customizable trading workflow. It allows users to effortlessly view inventories of unlimited size in real time, with comprehensive sorting and filtering capabilities.
The Caplin Platform supports trading services across any number of asset classes. Information from any number of internal silos can be combined and presented on a single screen. And any number of Caplin motifs can be combined to provide a multi-asset solution.
If you require specialised functionality not contained in any of our standard products, our powerful tools make it easy to create it from scratch. We offer a comprehensive design and development service to help you achieve this, either by supporting your own developers or providing a complete managed delivery.
