Deutsche Bank launches first liquidity service for full spectrum of Interest Rate products

Deutsche Bank today announced the launch of Prism, a guaranteed liquidity service powered by the Bank’s Autobahn® electronic execution platform. Prism is the first service to offer aggregated liquidity, with depth of market, across the complete spectrum of Rates products – Interest Rate Swaps, US Treasuries and US Treasury Futures.

Prism enables clients to execute complex, cross-asset trades (including basis spreads, curve spreads and treasury swap spreads), by combining sophisticated execution algorithms with Deutsche Bank’s principal liquidity. In addition, Prism clients benefit from an electronic depth of market, which provides an unprecedented level of transparency, as well as active/passive order entry, from their own desktops.

“As the leader in US Fixed Income*, our perspective guides innovations to help clients navigate the challenges of an evolving market,” said Tom Hartnett, Head of Rates for North America. “In addition to helping clients manage risk, Prism provides an unparalleled degree of transparency for Interest Rate Swaps and Treasury products.”

Prism is available through Autobahn, Deutsche Bank's electronic distribution service. For more information about Autobahn, please visit: www.autobahn.db.com.

*Deutsche Bank was recently named the #1 US Fixed Income firm in terms of market share by Greenwich Associates.
