Buy-side offensive: LPA Group brings expert Zoran Strbenac on board and expands buy-side portfolio in private customer business
To open up a new target group for its capital market technology solutions with buy-side activities, the LPA Group ( has appointed buy-side expert Zoran Strbenac to the management team in Zürich as the new Sales Client Director DACH. Together with Strbenac, the LPA Group is now driving forward the expansion of CapTech services to include offerings for banks and asset managers with private customers.  

Strbenac, most recently Director Sales & Business Development Regulatory Services at cleversoft, is now responsible at LPA for sales of the new cloud-only “Capmatix Buy Side Cockpit” SaaS solution which serves the growing demand of the buy side for data and document services, combines all the relevant documents and data in a consolidated location and makes them accessible. Up to now, buy-side customers have been working with many different data and document providers and have had to spend large amounts of time on integration and continual maintenance.  

The new offering is planned as a further development of the existing Capmatix product line and is targeted specifically at the requirements of the buy side – with buy-side experience and demands directly integrated in the development process for the cockpit. Peter Panse, Director Business Development at LPA, is responsible for developing the new offering. The focus is on the provision, quality assurance and archiving of all the documents required for the sale of financial instruments – always with a view to time and cost savings, risk minimization, user friendliness, compliance and the possibility of integrating further documents, data and buy-side systems in the future. With the “Capmatix Buy Side Cockpit”, the LPA Group offers the buy side a unique one-stop-shop solution for document supply at the point of sale.  

Zoran Strbenac, Sales Client Director DACH LPA:
“Both the buy-side market and the demands of bank customers have developed rapidly, but many services at the point of sale have not been able to keep pace in terms of technology and are time consuming and complicated to use. We will close this gap with our Capmatix Buy Side Cockpit. Direct and constant interaction with our customers is important to us so we can deliver the greatest benefit in the long term.”

Stefan Lucht, founder of LPA and responsible for the Automate division:
“The Swiss financial market has always had a pioneering role and is therefore of particular importance to us when it comes to developing the best possible innovative solutions. That is why we are pleased to have found an ideal contact for our Swiss customers in Zoran and to be working together with him on opening up a new relevant customer group with the buy side.”

CSA Management: One of the most underrated aspects of the IBOR transition?

The IBOR transition brings many changes to the capital markets sector. One of the critical challenges of transition management is the amendment of collateralization for OTC derivatives. PAI (and implicitly discounting) needs to be adapted for EUR and USD-cash collateral from EONIA and EFFR to the new Risk Free Rates (RFRs) €STR and SOFR. This has to be done by the end of 2021 [1] (EUR) and the end of 2020 [2] (USD), respectively. While the adjustment for cleared derivatives is managed centrally by the CCPs, counterparties of bilaterally collateralized derivative portfolios must amend the collateral agreements by themselves. This requires EONIA or EFFR based legacy CSAs to be negotiated and compensation payments between counterparties to be settled. Complexity is increased further as many market participants still have some non-standardized legacy CSAs with features such as embedded floors or thresholds in place.
