Autobahn 2.0 is Live!

Autobahn Equity is part of Deutsche Bank’s electronic trading platform, providing you with access to execution solutions in all major equities markets including 12 within Asia Pacific. Autobahn trading is available in both lit and alternative venues via our flexible suite of algorithms or direct market access (DMA) and both are supported by robust risk controls.

Within Asia Pacific we are rolling out a new equities trading platform with artificial intelligence ("AI") capabilities, setting a new benchmark for best execution, a key focus for financial institutions particularly under MiFID II. The proprietary platform, Autobahn 2.0, was designed with a self-learning mechanism allowing its systems to predict equities pricing and volume with more accuracy, thereby enhancing the quality of execution. Furthermore, the system is equipped with momentum detection, to allow Autobahn to change behaviour in trending markets or switch quickly at inflection points. This will offer investors a powerful new tool in achieving and demonstrating best execution for their trades.
