Svenska Handelsbanken takes ICYFX

Handelsbanken (SHB) Capital Markets, Handelsbanken’s investment bank, has decided to use ICYFX for the FX options sales group in its Stockholm headquarters.

ICYFX has been selected as it was the most valuable tool on the market, offering a wide and relevant set of features. ICYFX will then provide all necessary means for FX sales to further enhance their already high-level service in the FX business. The structuring, marketing and sales of FX strategies is made quick and easy, as well as the follow up of customers’ positions and portfolio.

Martin Hessle, Senior derivative sales in SHB, comments: ‘I really appreciate ICYFX logical and interface. We can taylor-made our FX options strategies, depending on customers’ specific situations. Through graphs and presentations, we make every new strategy understandable, even though sophisticated and this is a real benefit for our customers. ICY software is also very responsive to our requests and ICYFX is continuously improved with new and relevant features.’

Quentin Heslouin, ICY software sales executive says: ‘we are delighted that SHB has taken ICYFX, and our customer base in Scandinavia is now really strong. For sure SHB will stay on the edge of FX business competition.’
