MMC Conference Room Morning star, Tokyo Midtown Tower 16F, Japan


This exclusive, invitation-only event will allow senior leaders of leading financial firms to discuss the latest trends, developments, and innovations related to financial services and technology. David Easthope, Celent’s San Francisco-based Senior Vice President, Head of Capital Markets practice, will be returning to Tokyo to join Eiichiro Yanagawa, our Tokyo-based expert on financial technology.

The three-hour interactive session includes peer-to-peer discussions as well as presentations by Celent analysts. These presentations will focus on recent global trends as well as the analysts’ points of view and will highlight specific tools and technologies that can be used to address pressing challenges and opportunities. Discussion will follow.

Capital markets firms are faced with an array of strategic choices in 2019 centered upon technology. We will present a realistic and informed view on the key developments that will affect those strategic decisions.

Investment banks and brokerages are future-proofing their technology and operations to coincide with a digital age. One continuing imperative for sell side firms is improving the client experience across multiple dimensions, including relationship management, automation of the trading desk, and data. Faced with rising expectations, banks are refining their strategies to keep the client front and center while leveraging the latest and greatest technology.

Banks will need to harness the power of the ecosystem, including market infrastructures, technology vendors, service providers, and fintechs. They will also need to tend to their own infrastructures by leveraging the power of cloud computing, managed services and utilities to develop more scalable and agile solutions. Emerging technology advances are also allowing innovation to occur, by breaking some of the trade-offs between cost and performance. Some of the most notable in capital markets are AI/ Machine Learning/ Robotic Process Automation, and Blockchain.

The buy side is not sitting still. In this session, we will also elaborate on how asset managers are rebooting core systems in 2019. Having relied heavily on the sell side to deliver solutions, and faced with their own strategic choices, the buy side will increasingly reinvent their own core systems and infrastructure for a digital age, sometimes leveraging their broker-dealers, vendors and service providers, and other times building solutions internally.
