Fixed Income, Currency, and Commodities (FICC) Technology plays a key role in the firm’s ability to help institutional clients buy and sell financial instruments on liquidity venues around the world, an important revenue driver for the firm. In FICC Technology we use both open source industry standard and internal proprietary technologies to build cutting edge platforms for pricing, execution, and control over each of these millions of transactions.
FICC Macro technology organization supports the business interests of the Interest Rates and Foreign exchange businesses in Asia.

Our team utilizes a rich software stack comprised of both open source and proprietary technologies (Slang/SecDb).
