Capital Markets

Our capital markets research focuses on how technology can best be leveraged by industry participants including financial institutions such as investment banks, broker/dealers, investment managers, asset managers, hedge funds, and asset owners as well as trading venues and market infrastructures.

We help our clients create competitive advantage, increase efficiencies, comply with regulation, and innovate business models and workflows. We also provide data, tools, and research to support vendor selection and competitive landscape analysis.


Celent analysts offer a breadth of insights and benchmarking data based on proprietary market research across technology and market structure/regulatory trends. We cover a number of emerging technologies from advanced analytics, artificial intelligence, machine learning, and robotic process automation to cloud, open source, blockchain, distributed ledger, digital assets, and quantum computing.
