London, 1 June 2016 – The difference between the current environment for individuals engaged in post-trade processing and that of a decade ago is striking. Front-office processes have become more electronic, headcount-cutting activities have risen in importance, post-trade market infrastructure has evolved, and the compliance burden has increased. Since sell-side firms must also scrutinize a trade’s full life cycle to remain profitable, middle- and back-office technology environments have come under the spotlight.
This research explores large investment banks’ post-trade processing environments and the challenges they are facing. It highlights a number of case examples of investment banks’ back-office systems, and is based on Q1 2016 Aite Group telephone interviews with executives at four Tier-1 investment banks.
