Securities & Investments Newsletter: July 2018
With summer in full swing, we are pleased to offer up some summer capital markets reading through several newly released reports. In the US, a road trip is a common summer occurrence, so you can think of these reports as destinations on a trip across the capital markets technology value chain.
As a first stop, Brad Bailey gives us an in-depth look at FX technology across the entire spectrum, profiling vendors with innovative solutions. He helps us salute 21 vendors all the way to the horizon. Next stop along the way is the land of mutualization, with a report by Arin Ray that tracks the progress of utility and managed service solutions and discusses the next phase of evolution. A great way to catch up on the progress of adoption.
Next, Joséphine de Chazournes takes us to a new world where customer interaction at an institutional bank has a radical new look, in the form of AI-powered sales assistants. A very different landscape
Finally, for those of you who prefer a beach visit with something to take under your umbrella, I suggest John Dwyer’s second report on Asset-Based Tokens on how tokenization represents not only a method of fundraising and liquidity but also a new business strategy (e.g., the potential for an AmazonCoin).
When you return from vacations rested and refreshed, you may be keen to reconnect with us, so we encourage you to attend a client roundtable, attend a webinar (or listen to an on-demand version), contact an analyst, or catch up on some recent research.
In the meantime, happy summer!
