Caplin Direct

Caplin Direct is a breakthrough in FX e-distribution.

Delivered as a hosted, managed service, it is designed for banks that want a custom FX single-dealer platform, but have previously been held back by the cost and technical challenges involved. Caplin Direct eliminates these barriers by delivering a fully operational single-dealer platform as a service. It works ‘out of the box,’ while still allowing unlimited branding, customization and extension with unique features and workflows.

Using proven Caplin Platform and Caplin Trader technology, the new service connects quickly and easily to existing e-trading systems. To find out more, contact us.
