Deutsche Bank has now decided to join deritrade®, along with Morgan Stanley and Société Générale. With this move four major industry players will distribute their structured products via Vontobel’s unrivalled multi-issuer platform. The new collaboration confirms Vontobel’s technology leadership in the future-oriented platform business.


Issuers who join Vontobel’s multi-issuer platform deritrade® gain a decisive competitive advantage in the market for tailored and transparently comparable structured products since they ensure that they are fully compliant with the investor protection rules set out in the European Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), which, among other things, imposes much more stringent requirements regarding the comparability of prices that are set. In addition, the individual issuers profit from a significant reduction in production costs by being grouped together on a central issuing platform. This benefits investors in structured products in the form of higher returns.


Roger Studer, Head of Investment Banking at Vontobel, comments: "deritrade® is on its way to becoming as planned a leading multi-issuer platform. We are proud that Deutsche Bank has decided to take advantage of this pioneering marketplace for structured products. I am convinced that this collaboration will benefit both investors as well as the participating issuers.” Nicolas Traissac, Head of Equity Derivatives Trading for EMEA at Deutsche Bank added: "This development provides access to an attractive distribution channel and diverse client base."
