Abstract

The fixed income market is changing, mainly because of the economic crisis that Europe is facing, the uncertainty surrounding the euro, and the instability of the global financial system. Globally, a myriad of regulations has been and is still being drafted in an attempt to provide more stability, security, and transparency.

Regulations will have a tremendous impact on banks, dealers, brokers, and investors, all of which will have to adapt to a changing environment with the support and products that software vendors will provide them. In the report Technology in European Fixed Income: Time to Open Pandora’s Box, Celent examines the disruptive technology solutions that some market players, external vendors, and in-house developers are coming up with to solve issues within the European fixed income market.

“We don’t believe there is a magic lamp that will solve the issues the buy and sell side are facing,” says Joséphine de Chazournes, Senior Analyst with Celent’s Securities and Investments Group and author of the report. “However, it is now time to open Pandora’s box for many market players, who will have to find a way to make various solutions fit together.”

This report examines vendors’ various technology solutions to help address the issues market players face.

This 22-page report contains five figures and four tables.
