Bank am Bellevue uses MACD Execution Management System

Bank am Bellevue successfully went live on the 5th of April 2018 with GLOX and XKYTE FIXBOX from MACD. With GLOX and XKYTE, the bank relies on proven hosting in the trading business and highly flexible brokerage on the customer side. The financial institution uses MACD's XLFIX for market making in structured products and mid and small caps. Thanks to the hosted order and execution management system from MACD, the bank could outsource various IT processes and thereby reduce their IT overhead. George Macdonald, CEO MACD: 'We are very proud to have on-boarded such a reputable customer and look forward to a long and successful partnership.'
