Trusted and reliable partnership: After more than 3 years of strong cooperation, Landesbank Hessen-Thüringen (Helaba) has decided to increase their selection of services from the icubic AG portfolio by adding iQbonds 4.3.

Following the most recent deals with NORD/LB and Erste Group Bank, Helaba has now also chosen to rely on iQbonds and the expertise of the Magdeburg software professionals. “The uncomplicated and professional project management suits our needs perfectly. We consistently receive excellent support and have been able to successfully complete all projects within the predetermined time and cost framework”, explains Thomas Weidmann, Head of Fixed Income Trading at Helaba. Along with the flexible and clear contract terms, in which supplementary mandatory updates are covered under the maintenance agreement, the short implementation times as well as customised and innovative customer adaptations motivated a speedy release upgrade to the new iQbonds Version 4.3.
