Celent offers clients insights based on proprietary market research. Our knowledge is delivered through a range of formats, including technology and market trend analyses, case studies, webinars and in-depth vendor evaluations.

By informing decisions around technology investment and strategy, we seek to advance our clients’ competitive positions. Celent is committed to helping our clients assess the technology implications across the financial system, from changes in business models to new strategies and technologies required to respond to this new reality and other changes. We’re in touch with financial institutions and their technology partners around the world and are developing a host of new perspectives, updated regularly, to help you make the right strategic technology choices in the medium- and longer term. Our clients have access to our insights through traditional ways – reports, blogs, Analyst Access – and new media, like interactive virtual roundtables and snap polls.

Nimble deployment of technology and mastery of data will be critical for financial institutions as we emerge from the shadow of COVID-19. Collaboration between market participants and vendors will be all the more important in this context. How can capital market firms succeed in this environment? Our research for the final quarter of 2020 seeks to answer these questions and consider key trends as we consider and plan for 2021.

One thing is certain: none of us can go it alone. As you face hard decisions in the areas of technology and partnerships, Celent is here to support you. We can help you vet partners and technologies as you respond to government initiatives, the changing needs of your customers, and growing cost pressures.
