Deutsche Bank revamps Autobahn FX with hybrid blotter

The revamped single-dealer FX platform, Autobahn FX, has the market's first trade blotter that combines electronic and voice trade blotter across all execution channels, including trades that have been executed on a third-party platform via Deutsche Bank. No longer do clients have to hold separate accounts for electronic and voice trading. Deutsche Bank has had to bring together departments and operations so that clients and sales people have the same view across the client's portfolio. The brand new platform is tailored to each client and client segment, delivering superior workflow integration and diverse functionality based on state of the art technology.

The Autobahn FX trading platform provides:

  • a combined electronic and voice trade blotter showing all trades regardless of execution channel. This enables clients to perform aggregation, roll forward and allocation of trades, giving customers greater accessibility and control of their trades
  • streaming non-deliverable swaps
  • access via Deutsche Bank's Autobahn App Market, the first 'App-based' electronic client offering in the financial services industry, providing a central access point to the bank's full suite of electronic services as well as research, real-time market commentary, charting applications, analytics and market data
  • an enhanced set of complex order types, including contingent, multi-leg and algorithmic orders.

The Autobahn platform uses modular and highly flexible technology that allows clients to build baskets of applications that meet their specific needs. The platform will be rolled out in staged releases over the coming months. Over 300 clients already use the new Autobahn platform. Deutsche Bank will continue to support its existing Autobahn FX platform until clients are successfully migrated.


The merging of voice and electronic FX dealing is a major improvement in FX trading platforms. Similar developments are coming to market soon.
