The new license will strengthen CASAL access to the local market and expand its product offering to a wide range of derivatives and derivative-linked notes, covering all types of underlying (rates, FX, equity, credit etc.).

This broadened product suite will better serve the needs of its Korean clients by supporting their diverse investment and hedging strategies.
