Calypso Technology extends reach to Chile
Calypso Technology has opened an office in Santiago, Chile in response to a growing client demand and increasing opportunities in the Latin American markets.
The office will serve as a professional services hub as well as a sales and marketing base for the region. The area had previously been managed from the integrated capital markets platform provider’s New York office. According to Calypso, a local presence was required as a result of recent sales momentum and growth of its client portfolio.
Calypso provides a cross-asset front-to back-office platform for trading and operational needs, enabling the Chilean market to move to a centrally cleared derivatives environment.
“We see great demand for our cross-asset capabilities from banks in the region who are looking to increase market share – both locally and globally, as foreign investors continue to focus on the region,” Carlos Patino, director of business development, Latin America and Caribbean, said.
“These currents are also being driven by a need to comply with multiple regulatory regimes, while moving quickly to capitalise on current opportunities.”
