20 Most Promising Capital Markets Tech Solution Providers - 2015

Raising capital has become a challenge today as uncertainty persists in global economy. Struggling credit markets, slipping stocks, and sliding dollars are posing threat to the policy makers. Organizations should identify areas where they can retain a competitive advantage as they weigh tough balance sheet choices. Discovering essential financial instruments vital for capital markets has become imperative. Top priorities in risk management include aggregation of risk across the trade lifecycle, investment in analytics, and strengthening an ethical, risk-minded culture. Organizations should be redesigning their technology architecture by embracing modernization, simplification, and automation. Modern technologies make it possible for firms to stay competitive and capitalize on an array of opportunities. Whether it is complex analytical algorithms to predict future movements and perform valuations of complex products or connectivity to exchanges, technology has been at the forefront of capital markets development.

Instead of hosting hundreds of servers, it is possible to effectively pool all or a substantial part of hardware from the same location through the cloud. Apart from cloud-based software solutions, capital markets technology includes trading analytics, valuation, data management and analysis, regulatory compliance and risk management solutions for structured finance.
