Post-trade operations in capital markets are undergoing a major transformation. Cost and regulatory pressures on capital market firms are exposing the inefficiencies in post-trade, which in many cases rely heavily on manual processes. The situation is compounded by tectonic shifts taking place in post-trade infrastructure.
Adapting to market structure changes, enhancing post-trade services and solutions, and optimizing efficiencies across the trade lifecycle and collateral management require a move away from the traditional approach to post-trade operations. We see several technology and operational themes emerging in the post-trade industry in response to these challenges, and discuss them in a published report titled Next Generation of Post-Trade Technology: Evolution to Revolution.
