DECIDE Front Office

Investment decisions in time, holistic market and company overview

With DECIDE, you are not just making trading decisions. You can access market data throughout your company, view research information, news, proprietary data, and histories as well as utilize analysis and simulation options. These are based on a selection of mathematical libraries and calculated data, e.g., yields and correlations, risk information, limits, and positions. Decisions can be made within microseconds based on available real-time market data or data which is calculated internally and adjusted.
