leave a comment »

SYDNEY, Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — Saxo Capital Markets (Australia) Pty Ltd (‘SCM Australia’) , the online trading and investment specialist, today announced the launch of its retail operations in Australia, offering investors the opportunity to trade thousands of asset classes across award-winning online platforms.

Saxo Capital Markets (Australia) Pty Ltd is a wholly-owned subsidiary of Saxo Bank A/S. It holds an Australian Financial Services Licence 280372 and is regulated by the Australian Securities & Investments Commission.

The move extends Saxo Bank Group’s reach in the fast-growing Asia-Pacific, and is consistent with its goal of being the premier multi-asset online trading platform in the world.

SCM Australia offers local traders sophisticated trading platforms such as SaxoTrader and SaxoWebTrader, permitting the trading of foreign exchange, CFDs and stocks with live streaming prices and lightning-fast stock trades. SCM Australia provides clients with access to over 160 foreign exchange crosses, more than 13,000 stocks from 25 major exchanges and over 140 Futures contracts on live market prices from over 19 exchanges. SCM Australia’s CEO Anthony Griffin said the company believed it had the services and competitive offering to transform the online trading market in Australia.

Mr Griffin states, “In Australia, we will be adopting the standard Saxo business model that has been successfully implemented in over 20 countries and bringing our award-winning platforms to the market.”

Further, he states, “It was critical to ensure that investors were educated as much as possible on the asset classes they were trading in and the risks involved. As a result, SCM has a number of online educational tools available to ensure investors are informed.”

SCM Australia recently completed the acquisition of Logos Commodities Pty Ltd, the holding company of Commodity Broking Services Pty Ltd, bringing with it an excellent client base and broadening its suite of services.

Kim Fournais and Lars Seier Christensen, co-founders and CEOs of Saxo Bank, said in a joint statement:

“While opening an office in Sydney is a strategic decision to support our Asia-Pacific expansion and growth strategy, it has always been a priority for Saxo Bank. The acquisition has brought with it both tremendous staff as well as a great range of clients. That has given us the critical mass for doing business here. This is a good time for us to prove our commitment to the Australian market.”

Saxo Bank was founded in 1992. Saxo Bank’s trading platforms have defined the company’s success in the online trading space for over a decade. Since introducing the SaxoTrader in 1998, Saxo Bank has enhanced and improved its platforms to meet the evolving needs of traders and investors in a continuously changing industry. The Group has expanded overseas since 2006 and now has operations in more than 20 countries including major financial centres such as Tokyo, Singapore, Hong Kong, London, Zurich, Dubai, and Paris.

Corvil Delivers the First Multi-Team Latency Management Platform

leave a comment »

LONDON and NEW YORK, Jan. 30, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ —

Corvil, a provider of latency management systems for global financial markets, today announced significant updates to its CorvilNet platform that will bring the benefits of latency management to multiple trading businesses and support teams in the same organization. This is in response to demand from customers looking to update and consolidate multiple disparate infrastructures into one common low-latency trading infrastructure that can be shared cost effectively across all businesses. Supported by a common product platform to assure performance and latency of the underlying data and transactions.

The new release extends the reach of the CorvilNet latency management platform into multiple asset classes and departments. A single CorvilNet installation can now serve multiple departments with the relevant analysis and metrics for their business needs. Executives, trading desks, trade support teams and infrastructure teams will now have one-click access to CorvilNet with real-time and historical views, tailored to their specific requirements. These views also include the option to restrict access to specific order flow. For example, multiple trading desks across asset classes can share a single CorvilNet deployment with the assurance that other trading desks cannot access their order flow analysis.

Donal O’Sullivan, VP Product Management Corvil said, “By replacing several outdated monitoring systems with a single latency management platform, which is flexible enough to meet the needs of the entire organisation, our customers are achieving considerable cost savings.”

One of the users is Deutsche Borse, which is refreshing its global latency monitoring system and adding new capabilities for its recent 10G co-location service with the latest version of the CorvilNet platform.

“CorvilNet provides both our customers and us with a complete and comprehensive latency insight of Deutsche Borse Group’s markets. With the upgrade to the new CorvilNet system we renew our commitment to offer the best services to our customers,” said Matthias Kluber, Executive Vice President Deutsche Borse, responsible for Networks and Infrastructure.

Other highlights in the release include the CorvilNet Latency Feed; which allows real-time multicast distribution of CorvilNet latency data; distributed multi-hop analysis; time of day alerting and zero traffic alerts, e.g. when market data or trading sessions fail.

The new release is available immediately; contact your Corvil sales representative for further information.

German Authorities Recommend Removal of TiBREEZE Breast Implants

leave a comment »

HANOVER, N.H., Jan. 29, 2012 /PRNewswire-Asia/ — The International Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ISAPS) has been officially informed by the German authorities at the BfArM Institute that the former company, GfE Medizintechnik GmbH in Germany, sold implants that were manufactured using PIP components. From September 2003 to August 2004 they were sold under the name TiBREEZE. These silicone implants were coated by GfE Medizintechnik GmbH with a titanium layer and subsequently filled by PIP in France with their silicone gel. The silicone composition was the same as in PIP and Rofil implants that were filled with industrial grade silicone since 2001. Therefore, the German authorities at the BfArM Institute today amended their recommendation of 6 January 2012 to explant PIP and Rofil implants to include explantation of TiBREEZE implants as a precautionary measure even without symptoms.

The successor of the company stated to ISAPS that 728 implants were produced in this period of time. Most of those implants were sold in Germany where they include about 280 patients. In addition to Germany, TiBREEZE implants were delivered to the following countries: Belgium, Italy, Finland, South Africa, Switzerland, England, Austria and Lichtenstein. A total of 400 patients worldwide are thought to be affected.

According to Dr. Dirk Richter (Germany), Chair of ISAPS’ Patient Safety Committee, “as there are no studies yet available to prove the safety of industrial grade silicone in the human body, ISAPS supports the French and German authorities’ recommendations and encourages all women with TiBREEZE, PIP or Rofil breast implants produced after 2001, to check with a specialized plastic surgeon to discuss removal of the implants.”

The forty-one year old International Society of Aesthetic Plastic Surgery is the largest international society of individual board certified (or the equivalent) aesthetic plastic surgeons with 2,140 members in 93 countries. Surgeons undergo a strict application process to determine their qualifications to join the society. The ISAPS mission is twofold: the continuing education of plastic surgeons in latest techniques in the field of aesthetic plastic surgery and medicine and the promotion of patient safety. All ISAPS members are listed on the website http://www.isaps.org
