Post-trade technology

Providing cloud-ready, capital markets automation.

Financial markets are evolving rapidly, and pressure continues to build on sell-side firms to do more with less. At the same time, new technologies such as cloud computing, artificial intelligence (AI), and distributed ledger technology (DLT) are transforming the industry. These solutions will enable industry-leading firms to prosper.

Yet most post-trade systems were developed over 30 years ago and are not suited to today’s environment.

FNZ can help your organization implement highly automated, scalable post-trade operations.

Flexibility and scale are more important than ever

In addition to commercial and legacy technology challenges, firms are contending with:

  • Regulatory divergence – complexities must be streamlined to manage different regulatory regimes around the globe

  • Buy-side purchasing power – competition amongst brokers is increasing as digitization provides better execution

  • Transparency and data security – permissioned access to data is crucial to protect confidential and valuable information

  • Client centricity – On-demand access to end-client information is now expected, with the ability to self-serve as desired

  • Financial market infrastructure changes – new clearing and settlement regimes and interfaces are adding to the complexity

FNZ can help with proprietary post-trade technology, a comprehensive capital markets offering that includes middle and back office processing, clearing, and settlement.
