About eppf

The fixed income space is the last bastion of slow and manual processes and a patchwork of partial solutions. Costs are multiplied and efficiencies lost. Companies, banks and investors are renting all from their cars to their cloud platforms – now they can rent the full value chain for fixed income capital markets services too.

The Only Cohesive, Unified Pan-European Solution

eppf establishes a genuine single capital market in the EU where investors are able to invest their funds without hindrance across borders

Solution for All Market Participants

Too many procedures and processes make non-bank lending very complex. This consumes a lot of businesses‘ otherwise productive time. eppf solves these challenges.

"We have now with eppf shown that an efficient, fully digital, straight-through-processed flow of funds from investors to issuers is achievable"

Peter Nijsse MD Treasury/Capital Markets at BNG Bank

How it works?

Participants of the eppf platform interact with each other within a global ecosystem.

"In order to make efficient use of funding windows and opportunities, it is essential to have a fully automated, front-to-back, real-time issuance process that works upon a mouse click"

Former Head of Banking and Capital Markets, PwC Germany and today COO and Member of the Management Board of an International Broker Dealer

Challenges eppf solves

Current bond issuance systems are fragmented and outdated.

  • No available solution covers the entire value chain in fixed income

  • Existing solutions are not user friendly

  • Slow, time-consuming processes

  • Large parts of the current systems are still manual

  • No economies of scale or cost

  • Little to no transparency

  • Most are legacy systems with no automation

  • No interconnectedness due to proprietary systems

  • Greenwashing and truly dark green bonds

"eppf is an example of how existing financial technology can be adapted to create value"

Wolfgang Koehler, CFA, Board Member for capital markets at DZ BANK
