London – 5 May 2021

Instimatch Global (‘Instimatch’), an international digital network for institutional money market lending, has signed a partnership agreement with Eiger Trading Advisors Limited (‘Eiger’), a leading financial technology company specialising in commodity Murabaha trade facilitation and execution services, to offer financial institutions a fully integrated trading workflow for Sharia’a-compliant transactions.

Daniel Sandmeier, CEO at Instimatch Global, explained that Instimatch Global is paving the way to reinvent conventional ways in which money markets operate. He added that “…Instimatch offers more visibility, transparency and efficiency, enabling users to function more efficiently and effectively. The Network also empowers users to better manage risk, by enabling them to diversify their lending portfolios and sources of cash.”

The partnership provides global money-market borrowers and lenders with a collaborative value proposition for Sharia’a-compliant transactions; end-to-end Islamic trading which is fully automated through straight-through processing.

For Instimatch Global, the integration of the Eiger Trading Platform and its innovative technology provides access to Sharia’a-compliant assets and trade structuring services which ensures seamless trade execution and post-trade automation.

Abdullah Al-Ghanim, Head of MENA at Instimatch Global said “…we are pleased with this new strategic partnership with Eiger which enables us to leverage their platform and enhance our offering to deliver a single integrated solution for our customers. Besides the integration with the Eiger Platform, we are also very proud to announce the successful completion of the first ever digital end-to-end Murabaha transaction involving Warba Bank and Burgan Bank in Kuwait”.

The Eiger Trading Platform is a world-class, market-leading financial technology that provides the Islamic financial market with real-time trading of Shariah-compliant physical commodities, via a secure digital platform and APIs which enable open-banking and digital transformation.
