Summary: Continue working on a platform for Structured Investments (both for Broker-Dealer and Private Banks). Work consists of both, improving the existing system (though the system is brand new) and introducing new functionality, new screens, etc. Example of the new task – add secondary market (the ability to buy and sell investments).

In fact, we work directly with sales group, who define requirements. This is a product, which they use to provide functionality to clients. The platform is not self-purpose. It is a way to sell new service and generate revenue. In that sense, we are doing product development.

We are also involved in UXD part.
