NEW YORK--After a three-year development effort, Credit Suisse First Boston (CSFB) has begun rolling out PrimeTrade--a Web-based, automated trading and risk management system for foreign exchange and fixed income trading.

PrimeTrade is part of the investment bank's efforts to increase the range of products and services it offers to clients, as well as to increase the links between its FX, fixed income, equity and investment banking franchises (FXW, March 2).
