The IT service provider icubic develops specialised standard software for pricing, quoting and trading of financial products on electronic markets and offers product-related installation and maintenance services. The long-standing close cooperation with Börse Stuttgart will be expanded in the future with icubic AG as their official system partner. This enables icubic to provide a technical connection to Börse Stuttgart’s new and innovative interface for the provision of liquidity in the bond market.
Both companies value the active and open communication as well as the helpful transfer of know-how. After all, icubic’s core competency in the development of technical connections is what makes the communication and quoting with the Quality Liquidity Provider (QLP) in Börse Stuttgart’s hybrid market model possible.
