Recorded Webinar: Opportunities of new approaches to electronic trading

9 December 2021

Challenged by legacy systems, less than ideal workflows and high costs, front-office trading teams lack the ability to adapt to clients’ evolving needs around integration, speed and multi-asset capabilities. They are also challenged by a capital markets environment characterised by legacy systems, shrinking margins and increased regulatory scrutiny.

While these problems cause considerable friction in trading operations, they can be resolved by modernisation in the front-office, simplification of the technology stack, and a modular approach to software solutions. This will drive not only automation and greater efficiency in the front office, but also business and operational benefits.

This webinar will discuss the opportunities of new approaches to electronic trading.

Sign up for the webinar to find out more about:

  • Front-office trading teams’ challenges and need for change
  • How to simplify and sustain the trading technology stack
  • Current and future potential of modular trading systems
