Hong Kong (PRWEB) January 27, 2015
This initiative targets to swiftly address the significant cost pressures, inefficiencies, lack of open standards and transparency that plague private banks and wealth management firms when sourcing, quoting and transacting wealth investment products since the global financial crisis.
Contineo’s shareholding has been divided among AGDelta and a panel of global investment banks including Barclays, BNP Paribas, Goldman Sachs, HSBC, J.P. Morgan and Societe Generale Corporate & Investment Banking who will form the first batch of liquidity providers to the Platform. Contineo’s newly hired Managing Director, Mark Muñoz will run the operations based in Hong Kong.
The solution offering is powered by AGDelta’s application architecture and user interface with open API's for connectivity to support the possibility to execute Price Discovery & Trade Execution between both buy and sell side firms. Wealth managers and independent asset managers will also have the opportunity to leverage further pre-existing plug-ins to AGDelta's award winning digital wealth investment platform, which is in production with thousands of bankers, across all asset classes, in over 15 markets globally, transacting over a billion dollars notional daily.
