Wir fahr’n fahr’n fahr’n auf der Autobahn

I was astonished to hear this week that Deutsche Bank’s Autobahn trading platform has never experienced a losing month since it went live in 2001. So astonished, in fact, that I contacted the bank to see if the claim was true.

I expected a ‘no comment’ response, but Deutsche confirms its veracity.

I’ve now started to ponder on how much Autobahn is contributing to Deutsche’s bottom line. I understand that the bank manages to internalise a huge amount of the flow seen on Autobahn – perhaps as much as 85%. I also have a rough idea of how much the bank makes per million. What I don’t know yet is what proportion of the business Deutsche sees is done on Autobahn. But I’m working on adding all the sums up and will report back in due course.

Trading platforms: Autobahn: still motoring along
