JFD Brokers Boosts Stock Trading with New Zero-Fee Offering

JFD Brokers Boosts Stock Trading with New Zero-Fee Offering

Limassol, 14. February 2019 – After the successful acquisition of the German-based ACON bank, the multi-asset fintech group introduces commission-free stock trading conditions and adds Dutch stocks to its product portfolio.

Historically stock trading has been an expensive endeavour for retail traders and investors. High fees charged by traditional brokers are oftentimes the difference between a winning and a losing share trade. Although technology has replaced many of the bottlenecks raising the cost of trading, these savings have not been passed onto end-clients and mostly kept on the brokers“ books as additional profit.

JFD Brokers is an innovative trading service provider challenging this status quo by introducing zero-fee stock trading for its clients. Effective immediately real stock trading with the company is totally commission-free. The new conditions come with no limitations to number of trades, minimum volumes, or additional monthly fees and charges. New and existing clients can take advantage of zero-fee stock trading by simply opening a JFD trading account.

„It has always been our goal to be at the forefront of fintech innovation and offer the best possible service for traders and investors. Cutting all commissions for stock trading is just the first step in our long-term vision to become a preferred financial service provider,“ explains Lars Gottwik, founder and CEO of JFD Brokers. He adds: „JFD is mostly comprised of forward-thinking Millennials and we know what the new generation expects when it comes to finance, technology and customer service.“

On top of the revolutionary new offer for stock trading, JFD Brokers has added new instruments to its product portfolio. Clients can now trade a selection of Dutch stocks via both MetaTrader 5 and Guidants platforms. This new addition brings the total number of real stocks offered by JFD to more than 600 from Germany, USA, and the Netherlands. The company also provides Forex and CFD trading on ETFs, Indices, Commodities, Cryptocurrencies and Bonds.

In 2018 JFD acquired the BaFin-regulated investment bank ACON Actienbank with offices in Munich and Frankfurt. With the completion and final approval of this transaction, the Group is now ready to meet the needs of both the young generations in terms of execution and investment services and the corporations with innovative capital and liquidity solutions.

Seamless handover of department management

Dr Paul Wild takes over R&D at Rehm

Seamless handover of department management

Dr Paul Wild (left) and Dr Hans Bell (right).

Since February 1, 2019, the research and development department at Rehm Thermal Systems has had a new manager: Dr Paul Wild. He takes over as department head from Dr Hans Bell, who has led the research and development department for nearly 20 years and will retire in 2020. Dr Wild has worked for Rehm since the end of 2014.

The previous deputy, Dr Paul Wild, experienced and technologically well-versed, now takes over the management of the development department. „Over the last few years I have been able to familiarise myself with many aspects of the R&D department and accumulate valuable experience. I quickly got involved in the existing development processes and worked with my scientific expertise to expand R&D,“ says Dr Wild, who has worked for Rehm, manufacturer of thermal system solutions, since the end of 2014. Dr Bell“s three key pillars of research and development at Rehm will remain the focus for the future: Research projects with institutes and industrial project partners, technological cooperation with customers, but above all internal research and development projects.

After nearly 20 years as head of the research and development department, Dr Hans Bell will continue to work in research and development at Rehm until he retires in 2020, passing on his experience and know-how to assist Paul Wild in meeting the new challenges. „I have great confidence for the future, because the department is in very good hands,“ says Dr Bell. „Paul Wild has a gift for talking with people, listening to them and leading creative conversations.“ He has always felt comfortable „in and with the entire Rehm team,“ says Dr Bell. „It’s a good relationship that is perfectly goal-oriented. For that I“m very thankful.“

To this day, Dr Bell values the work with the customers and project partners of Rehm Thermal Systems: „It is important to maintain a balance between our own development and technological know-how transfer in cooperation with partners.“ There“s one thing that makes him prouder than any other: the integration of young people into the company. „Be it students or school pupils who completed internships or undertaking graduate study in development – many have stayed with Rehm to this day. It shows that the company has a really great appeal.“

Dr Paul Wild
Dr Paul Wild studied Aerospace Engineering at the University of Stuttgart. After graduation he worked as a research associate at Hahn-Schickard Institute for Microsystems Engineering in Stuttgart. His specialisation was the reliability analysis of mechatronic systems, particularly based on MID technology. He has worked in the research and development department at Rehm Thermal Systems since November 2014. The main focus of his work is the development and enhancement of thermal systems, as well as technological cooperation with institutes and companies. In 2018 he received his doctorate from Hahn-Schickard Institute on the subject of reliability and life-cycle modelling of solder joints.

Dr Hans Bell
Dr Hans Bell has led the Research and Development Department at Rehm Thermal Systems since 2000. Until the end of 1999 he worked as a manufacturing technologist for DeTeWe in Berlin and was predominantly responsible for production-oriented tasks in the development of connection technologies, particularly soft soldering. During this time he obtained a doctorate from TU Munich, specialising in soldering. Over the course of his career Dr Bell has acquired extensive knowledge in the field of soft soldering, as illustrated by numerous patents, technical papers and books, and lectures and seminars.

As a specialist in the field of thermal system solutions for the electronics and photovoltaics industries, Rehm is a technology and innovation leader in the modern and economical production of electronic modules. As a globally operating manufacturer of reflow soldering systems with convection, condensation or vacuum, drying and coating systems, functional test systems, equipment for the metallisation of solar cells as well as numerous customer-specific special systems, we are represented in all relevant growth markets and, as a partner with more than 25 years of industry experience, we implement innovative manufacturing solutions that set standards.

Tetenal – How things will continue

Update on progress and proposed employee-led transformation

Tetenal - How things will continue

(Source: @tetenal europe gmbh)

Tetenal Europe GmbH filed for insolvency protection in September 2018. Over the past few days, the Company has stated that it will discontinue operations in its current structure and customers are asked to place final orders.

„Even though a layman might not know Tetenal, Tetenal chemistry is included in many products with well-known brand names. Without Tetenal, an essential piece of the market is missing“

says Marwan El-Mozayen, analogue photography expert and editor-in-chief of PhotoKlassik International.
However an employee-led revitalization proposal by more than 40 staff in Germany is hoping to lead a New Tetenal transformed and back into a leading position in the market to reflect the technology and heritage as one of the co-inventors of modern photochemistry

TSenior Tetenal Executives Stefania Grimme (production), Carsten Gehring (sales), Norbert Koester-Beestermoeller (sales), Mike Fawcett (brand distribution) and Dr. Burkhardt Mueller (R&D) will lead this initiative. The proposal will be submitted to the insolvency administration in the next few days. „Tetenal has delivered over 172 years of chemical photo development and an ongoing commitment to quality and service for its customers. By handing control of this much-loved business over to our experience leadership team and dedicated employees, we can bring customers new innovative and sustainable solutions“, says Peter Rasenberger (Grantiro)

Tetenal“s international subsidiaries in the UK, France and Poland are not directly affected by the liquidation of Tetenal Europe GmbH. „We continue to do business and look forward to a revitalized employee-led Tetenal in Germany“, say jointly the respective senior management Mike Fawcett (UK), Agnes Rivrain (France) and Adam Biedron (Poland).

The court-appointed insolvency administrator Dr Sven-Holger Undritz of the law firm White & Case agrees that if the Insolvency Administration can accept the employee led proposal as implementable, it will be good result for creditors and that „the insolvency administrator is happy with every job saved and we keep our fingers crossed“.
Swiss-based merchant banking boutique Rasenberger Toschek will support the employee-led initiative in negotiations with banks and investors.
„We are receiving calls from customers from around the world“ say Carsten Gehring and Norbert Koester-Beestermoeller (in the Sales team). „Not only are final orders eagerly placed, but concrete help is being offered, so that the FINAL ORDERS can also be the prelude to the new Tetenal“ continues Koester-Beestermoller.
So lights are not going out at Tetenal just yet… The insolvency administrator continues production in February and March. By April, the employee-led transformation must be implemented for the emergence of the proposed revitalized new Tetenal.

Goldmedia Trend Monitor 2019. Trends and outlook on developments in the areas of media, entertainment and the internet

Goldmedia Trend Monitor 2019. Trends and outlook on developments in the areas of media, entertainment and the internet

Infograph Goldmedia Trend Monitor 2019, © Goldmedia/Franziska Veh

Berlin, 24/01/2019. Every year, the Goldmedia consulting and research group ( www.Goldmedia.com) publishes analyst commentaries on relevant trends for the coming year in Germany. The Trend Monitor 2019 provides an outlook on selected developments in the areas of media, entertainment and the internet.

The Goldmedia Trend Monitor 2019 addresses disruption in the moving image market, the declining duopoly and new players in the online advertising sector, and the latests trends in the gaming industry such as gaming as a service and mobile shift. It asks whether audio is advancing to become the new leading medium, whether AVoD can save the TV broadcasters and industry, and how the book industry is working to hang on to its readers. The Trend Monitor 2019 also takes a look at the expected changes in the streaming market, explains how algorithms are making inroads at the cinema box office, and highlights how nanos are becoming a trend in influencer marketing.

Trend Monitor 2019 Topics

++ Complete Disruption: non-linear use is restructuring the moving image market
„It is high time that we stop thinking of streaming services as an appendage to the core business to date, and instead put them at the centre of future corporate strategy.“ (Prof. Dr. Klaus Goldhammer, Managing Director Goldmedia)

++ Is audio becoming the new leading medium? Why marketers need a digital audio strategy
„Changing opportunities for use and new content formats continue to drive growth and dynamism in the audio sector. That means advertisers need to also start including strong audio strategies.“ (Christine Link, Senior Consultant Goldmedia)

++ A declining duopoly: Amazon is looking to become a leader among global online advertising platforms
„People searching for products are shifting from Google to Amazon. Amazon will develop into one of the most important online advertising platforms.“ (Prof. Dr. Klaus Goldhammer, Managing Director Goldmedia)

++ Movement in the streaming market: everybody against Netflix
„The next round in the fight for VoD customers will begin in 2019. TV providers and Deutsche Telekom are making huge investments in the development of their own platforms. Meanwhile there is competition from the USA in the form of Disney and Warner.“ (Max Reichert, Research Associate Goldmedia)

++ Less is more: nanos are becoming a trend in influencer marketing
„Influencer marketing’s biggest advantages – authenticity, more interaction with the target group, high content output and credibility – are particularly effective with nano influencers.“ (Prof. Dr. Klaus Goldhammer, Managing Director Goldmedia)

++A tight spot for television advertising. Can AVoD save the TV broadcasters and industry?
„Increasing use of online video services is drawing considerable attention away from traditional advertising-financed offers, particularly television.“ (Dr. Florian Kerkau, Managing Director Goldmedia)

++ Games as a service: video games will shift more towards a subscription model in 2019
„People no longer just play through games once. Instead gaming services are increasingly retaining players over the long term, motivating them to conduct regular transactions and turning their games into media brands.“ (Mathias Birkel, Senior Manager Goldmedia)

++ Algorithms at the cinema box office: dynamic pricing is on the rise
„Box office prices were long fixed and based on experience, but cinema operators are increasingly benefiting from the advantages of dynamic pricing models.“ (Kevin Dieterich, Analyst Goldmedia)

++ Upheaval in the book market: young people don’t buy books any more
„In 2019, book publishers will have to make rigorous plans and consistent offers for the future to avoid losing an entire generation of readers.“ (Prof. Dr. Klaus Goldhammer, Managing Director Goldmedia)

++ Key drivers of growth in the gaming market: mobile shift and multiplayer as a service
„Competitive multiplayer games are increasingly played on mobile platforms, and the major games developers are going to have to react to that trend.“ (Tim Prien, Consultant Goldmedia)

The Goldmedia Trend Monitor 2019 articles have been published on the Goldmedia Blog and via media and digital services since the beginning of December 2018.

„Plunet fulfills all of our requirements“ – Translation Street changes their translation management system

"Plunet fulfills all of our requirements" - Translation Street changes their translation management system

(Source: Translation Street)

With the Polish translation service provider Translation Street, Plunet has gained another customer who is reorganizing their translation management processes with the powerful Plunet software.

Founded in 2010, Translation Street not only carries out translations in all world languages based on their customer“s needs and values, but also keeps up continuously with technical developments. The Krakow-based company offers a wide spectrum of services for a variety of industries, including specialist translations, interpreting services, proofreading, localization, and desktop publishing.

Plunet BusinessManager is the leading business and translation management software, offering a high level of automation and flexibility to complement a wide range of functionalities. Using a web-based platform, Plunet integrates every step of the translation management process in a single solution, from quote, order, job, and invoice management to reporting. The configurable system also makes it possible to customize functions and extensions to fit individual requirements.

Sought and found: A sophisticated system for a demanding market

Translation Street had been planning to switch to a different translation management system for a while. The fast-moving translation market brought with it new challenges that could no longer be tackled with the current solution. After extensive market research, Translation Street opted for Plunet. Stanisaw Szczurek, Partner at Translation Street, explains:

„We wanted a system that is web-based, quick and reliable, can be adapted to our requirements and combined with different modules – Plunet fulfills all of our requirements.“

The implementation process ran smoothly. After just a few months, Translation Street was able to configure the Plunet software to fit the company’s specifications, import the required data and arrange the necessary training for their own staff.

Peggy Grafe, Head of Implementation at Plunet, remembers the training phase:

„The customer explained their requirements in a clear and precise way, which meant that I could quickly respond to their requirements and give them specific advice on how to set up the system. All in all, it was a very open and uncomplicated collaboration.“

Big plus: Time savings

For the translation service provider, there are considerable advantages to using Plunet.

„The quotes, which can be automatically created as PDF files, demonstrate a high level of professionalism. Translators can directly access the files in the system – this is particularly important in urgent cases, if the project manager is not available.“

Another important aspect for Stanisaw Szczurek is the amount of time that has been saved – and in this sense, implementing Plunet has already paid off.

„Automatic notifications informing the translators that a job has already been assigned, or the option for vendors to upload or update their invoices in the system – there are so many ways to save time with Plunet.“

Looking to the future with Plunet

And Translation Street still has a lot planned with Plunet. At the top of the to-do list is the QualityManager module, which can be used for more efficient and ISO-compliant feedback processes, as well as a quicker vendor search and assignment. In the coming year, Translation Street is planning to switch to the dynamic CAT integration, and implement the VendorRegistrationManager module, which enables vendors to register themselves in Plunet BusinessManager.

Translation Street will therefore experience a number of changes that will further optimize processes and reposition the company – with Plunet always on board.

With offices in Würzburg, Berlin and New York, Plunet GmbH develops and markets the business and translation management software Plunet BusinessManager, the leading management solution for the translation and localization industry. With Plunet BusinessManager you can manage your entire workflow in a single solution, from client requests to quote, order, job and invoice management to reporting. Extensions for interpretation and quality management as well as integrations with CAT and financial accounting tools will further improve efficiency and automation in your work. Within a configurable system, various functions and extensions of Plunet BusinessManager can be adapted to individual needs.

Instant Payment – Speed is everything

Česká spoitelna supports real-time payments thanks to valantic technology

Frankfurt a.M. / Prague, 08 January 2019: The Czech bank Česká spoitelna gives its customers the opportunity to process payments in real time. The financial institution, a subsidiary of the ERSTE Group Bank AG in Vienna, is thus the first bank in the Czech Republic which provides instant payments. This innovative service is made possible thanks to the Real Time Payment Engine, a software provided by Dion Transaction Solutions, a valantic specialist for financial software solutions having a successful long-term cooperation with the Česká spoitelna.

Nowadays, e-mails and messages sent via messaging services reach their recipients, even on the other side of the world, within a few seconds whereas money is usually transferred at a significantly slower pace. Currently, financial institutions have one day for performing bank transfers. Prospectively, instant payments may revolutionise payment transactions likewise the e-mail already did with the forwarding of messages. Česká spoitelna has already arrived in the future and with the Real Time Payment Engine by Dion and valantic, the bank gives its customers the opportunity to process payments in Czech crowns in real time. Therewith, the two companies have achieved an important milestone as planned.

valantic“s Real Time Payment Engine (RTPE) is an open, modular structured payment hub solution. Apart from instant payments, it supports the processing of other payment types such as, for instance, SWIFT or SEPA. By integrating different payment channels – such as e-banking, manual recording of payments of payments via third-party providers – the RTPE is particularly versatile and highly flexible. In addition, the software working in real time comprises numerous gateways, is characterised by its multi-channel and multi-instrument capability and can easily be adjusted to country- and bank-specific requirements. Thus, all payment transaction services which may arise in a bank can be processed out of one central hub.

Bohuslav olta, COO of Česká spoitelna emphasises the importance of real-time payments for the Czech bank: „We built a platform which allows processing of instant payments as standard payments in a scale and volume needed for the biggest bank on the Czech market. Thanks to the successful implementation of the new payment solution, we have extended our position as innovation leader in the area of real-time readiness for payment processing.“ Silvia Mazánová, Tribe Lead, Real Time Payments System Tribe, Česká spoitelna, is also highly satisfied: „We had a clear objective: Increasing the efficiency regarding the processing of payment requests. In this context, we have been working together with our partner Dion, which now belongs to valantic, for several years in order to flexibly and quickly overcome the different challenges in the payment section. The implementation of the solution components of the Real Time Payment Engine has been very target-oriented. The modular design of the payment solution excellently matches with the complexity of our internal application environment.“

Jürgen Dahmen, Managing Director at Dion Transaction Solutions, points out the software performance: „We are proud to further develop the cooperation with Česká spoitelna and to ensure and constantly expand the bank“s competitive position by means of the RTPE“s modular system architecture. Thanks to the scalability and high availability, the software is able to manage any volume in a 24/7 operation mode.“
