The challenge

  • To create a seamless integration between ICE Link (the world’s most widely adopted CDS trade workflow) and in-house Deutsche Bank systems.

Our Solution

To achieve the required business benefits, a custom solution was required to link Deutsche Bank to ICE Link providing:

  • Coverage for CDS Single Names and CDS Indexes.
  • Coverage for core Deutsche Bank CDS workflow including new trades and trade amendments, as well as automated fund allocation insertion into Deutsche Bank systems.
  • A robust architecture with guaranteed message delivery within the very tight timescales required by the two platforms.
  • A solution with minimal configuration required for each additional client added to the Deutsche Bank systems

Key Benefits

  • Digiterre worked closely with both Deutsche Bank and ICE Link throughout the development to ensure that the Connector was integrated with the latest versions of the API and that internal Deutsche Bank best practices were followed.
  • Regular reviews were carried out involving all three parties (In-house development, offshore development & Digiterre) throughout the process, which helped to ensure that the project met the requirements of the business.
  • The Digiterre solution has allowed Deutsche Bank to reduce the time required to process trades and to reduce operational costs.
  • The connector integrates seamlessly into inhouse systems, alleging trades on the ICE Link platform against the selected Hedge Fund, and automatically inserting the fund allocations into the Deutsche Bank trading systems.
