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.


Pitch Perfect: ESG Edition
October 6, 10am ET/3pm BST

Trillions are being invested in the sustainability sector while mainstream financial entities roll out indices, fund products, launch green bonds and new markets. This space is full of excitement e.g. ETFs and even blockchain technology, but risks too, reputational and otherwise. New tech-savvy entrants promise to help financial institutions and investors get this right.
