Waters Technology has announced the winners of the Sell-Side Technology awards. We are pleased to announce that the award for ‘Best implementation at a Sell-Side Firm’ went to ZKB’s eTradingPro, a browser based Structured Products trading system delivered in partnership with Caplin.
For 6 months, three Caplin developers and I joined ZKB’s technical staff in Zurich to create a HTML5 web application utilising Caplin Trader for the client side and Caplin Platform to connect to the bank’s internal trading services.

The application allows traders, relationship managers and sales users to design, purchase and manage subscriptions of Barrier Reverse Convertibles. A dynamically updating chart has simplified the creation of the complex Structured Product, enabling users to instantly view how potential payoffs change as they alter their product’s variables.
Thus far, users have been impressed with the application’s intuitive interface and enhanced response time compared to its predecessor.
