Caplin has been helping investment banks, online brokers and other financial firms to build single-dealer platforms for over a decade. In 1999, Caplin created the first ever web server specifically designed for real-time financial data, enabling the company to build some of the very first single-dealer platforms for investment banks.
The use of single-dealer platforms has risen particularly in the past five years as banks have realised the benefits of being able to distribute market data to their customers in real time via a standard web browser, and to offer research, pre-trade analysis, pricing and trading in one or more asset classes. Caplin's technology is used worldwide by banks such as Citi, RBS, Standard Bank and UniCredit.
Founded in 2000, Caplin Systems is incorporated in England and Wales and is based in the City of London with sales offices in New York and Singapore. The company is privately held and the majority of its staff are employed in product development and professional services.
