Calypso FX - Deal Station
Meeting the needs of the global FX marketplace
Global foreign exchange markets continue to take advantage of technological
innovation to revolutionize the way FX is traded. The market is embracing
electronic trading, automation, and the globalization of the FX business, all of
which present challenges within organizations actively trading FX.
The technological changes taking place are all part of achieving a common goal increasing volumes in FX and managing those volumes. However,
handling explosive spikes in volumes, managing market risk on a huge
portfolio of trades, real time integration with the global FX market environment,
providing dynamic GUI customer access, while remaining cost-efficient can
strain many system environments.
Institutions seeking to increase revenue through client service differentiation
require efficiently executed FX trade lifecycle actions to avoid the erosion of
margins. Many legacy systems are often in silos and cannot meet the requirements of cross-asset position, connectivity to disparate platforms, risk and P&L
management, or STP in a single back office environment. Global foreign
exchange has become a market based on advanced technology, requiring an
organization’s FX business to run on an advanced solution.
Calypso® FX
Calypso® FX provides a highly scalable and customizable front-to-back FX
solution for banks, hedge funds, corporations and asset managers. It
provides traders, sales traders, fund managers, middle office, operations and

managers a consolidated global view of positions and risk using the Calypso Deal
