Lugano/Zurich/Geneva/London, May 20, 2021 – Valeur Group, an independent business specialized in asset management and trading services, has announced the acquisition of LinkedTrade, a SaaS multi-dealer platform leading the way in the digital transformation of the structured products industry, to strengthen its positioning and enhance its investment solutions offerings.

Using the most advanced technologies, LinkedTrade, a London-based FinTech company, digitally connects the Buy-side to the Sell-side and offers end-to-end automation for the conception, pricing, trading and risk monitoring of bespoke structured products.
