mBank to utilize kACE Treasury for pricing and distribution of FX products
Poland’s first fully Internet-based bank mBank SA (WSE:MBK) has selected kACE Treasury to enable the bank to price and distribute FX products through its e-commerce platform and across the institution.
kACE Treasury is fully integrated with the bank’s existing treasury systems, both proprietary and those provided by third parties, to allow for a seamless workflow solution for its users. kACE is a division of Fenics Software Limited, an entity within the BGC Partners, Inc. (NASDAQ:BGCP) group of companies.
“We are delighted that mBank has joined the growing kACE community,” said Richard Brunt, Managing Director at kACE. “Since the acquisition of Kalahari, we have invested heavily in our treasury solutions, expanding its pricing capabilities and more importantly the openness of its API’s, to allow for seamless publishing to downstream systems and e-commerce platforms. With many clients interacting with their customers remotely, automation of price distribution and robust e-commerce solutions has never been more important.”
“mBank selected kACE Treasury because of the accuracy of its pricing models and experience in integrating these models into existing e-commerce offerings,” said Rich Winter, Senior Managing Director at Fenics Market Data and Information Analytics Management.
“The model accuracy allows the bank to automate curve construction as much as possible and gives the trading desk the confidence to publish competitive tradable level pricing across a large number of currency pairs, in particular, auto-calculating prices around events in the market was a major factor in the bank selecting kACE Treasury,” he added.
mBank will be publishing 54 currency pairs and crosses.
