7 December 2021 – Luma Financial Technologies, the independent, multi-issuer structured products and annuities platform, has today announced that structured product issuer Marex Financial Products has selected to join the platform.
Marex Financial Products is a structured product issuer and part of the Marex Group, a leading global commodities specialist, founded in 2005. Marex offers a fully customisable derivative solutions service, and a manufacturing platform that enables low cost, highly flexible structured product issuance.
The company’s product suite ranges from index autocalls to specific and innovative designs, such as Bitcoin and cryptoasset-linked structured products.
Marex Financial Products will also connect to Luma’s automatic pricing API, enabling it to respond to price requests automatically and enhancing efficiency in the issuance process and therefore offering a more competitive price.
“Marex is an innovative issuer, and we are thrilled to be able to offer this new generation of structured products on the Luma platform,” said David Wood, Managing Director of Luma’s International Business. “The addition of Marex highlights Luma’s ability to bring diversity to markets, enabling clients from Asia to Latin America to access products from pioneering issuers across the world.”
“We are delighted to be joining the Luma platform and look forward to working closely with David and his team to bring our structured products to clients globally,” said Joost Burgerhout, Head of Financial Products at Marex. “Partnering with Luma enables us to access the firm’s extensive client base, marrying both firms’ strong technology platforms, which in turn will allow us to issue our products to market faster and more efficiently.”
The news follows Luma’s announcement of a white labelling service for clients both in Europe and globally.
Luma added issuers Finanzlab and Dynamic Capital Group to the platform in June and July, respectively.
