Recorded Webinar: New trends and technologies influencing post-trade digitalisation

27 September 2022

While digital transformation of front-office functions at financial institutions is well underway, the back office is lagging, calling on firms to reassess and innovate post-trade processes. The need for change is highlighted by specific issues, including the move towards T+1 settlement and increasing regulatory scrutiny of post-trade processes, as well as broader challenges of legacy platforms, inconsistent data and high costs. The ultimate aim, as in the front-office, is to drive value out of data.

This webinar will review issues influencing post-trade digitalisation, and discuss how technologies, such as cloud, distributed ledger technology, robotic process automation, artificial intelligence and machine learning, can be implemented to improve post-trade efficiencies, reduce costs and risk, and deliver value that can be reinvested in the front office. It will also touch on how to win buy-in and budget for digitalisation, required skill sets, and the importance of front-office engagement.

Register for the webinar to find out about:

  • Drivers of post-trade digitalisation
  • Challenges of implementation
  • Key technologies, tools and techniques
  • How to increase value and reduce risk
  • Wider benefits of post-trade digitalisation
