BNP Paribas launches trading platform for structured products

The platform provides real-time bid/offer prices from BNP’s trading desks for 1,500 structured products including bonds, interest rate, credit, equity, commodity, inflation, foreign exchange and hybrid structured notes, with average bid/offer spreads of 1%.

The platform is being marketed globally to private banking and retail distributors, who are now able to buy and sell structured products 24 hours a day through the bank’s website

Cedric Jeanson, London-based head of retail platform at BNP Paribas, says the bank has made a strategic push into the structured retail market because “the service that private banks and retail distributors want is a top quality secondary market”.

He adds that he expects the platform to be particularly successful in the Asian markets: “Looking at the client base, we think that Asia will be the biggest market because there is a trading mentality in Asia and this is where the strongest demand is [for this platform]”.

Prices are also published on Bloomberg and Reuters, and the bank aims to provide quotations directly to exchanges in 2005, starting with the Swiss, German and Euronext stock exchanges.
