Thanks to the modern technological equipment of oth platforms, local specialties as well as a multitude of languages, product universes and interactive formats can be mapped.

Stefan Lucht, Founder and Co-CEO of LPA, and Nick Yuen, Founder and Managing Director of DB Power, initiated this strategic alliance with a clear objective:

“Our partnership is designed to tackle the regulatory and technological hurdles encountered by financial institutions, especially those issuing structured securities on a global scale.
