New force in capital markets technology and infrastructure
November 28, 2017

Itiviti, backed by Nordic Capital Fund VII, today announces the intention to combine with ULLINK to build a full service technology and infrastructure provider for global and regional financial institutions.

The proposed combination of Swedish based Itiviti, a global leader in trading software for banks and trading firms, offering the full spectrum of sell-side capabilities and ULLINK, a best in class platform for cash equity and derivatives trading solutions, is intended to create a world-leader in capital markets technology with revenues of over US$200 million, 1,000 employees and a local market presence in all major markets of Europe, Asia and the Americas. Due to its scale and diversification, the new company will be a full service provider for global and regional financial institutions. The combined product portfolio would support the complete order cycle across all asset classes, and therefore the new company would be a powerful partner to existing and new customers within the finance industry.

The proposed combination would provide for a merger of two equals, both with market leading technology. Through scale and diversification, the combined entity would be ideally positioned to take advantage of shifting trends in the financial services industry, including new regulatory requirements such as MiFiD II (markets in financial instruments directive II), which are forcing financial institutions to revise their technological strategies in order to meet new compliance rules. The combined product portfolio will support the complete order cycle across all asset classes and therefore the combined company will be a powerful partner to existing and new customers within the finance industry.
