Top 20 Capital Markets Technology Companies - 2017

The dynamic nature of the capital market industry can be attributed to two major factors: evolving regulations and technological disruptions. In order to acquire more intelligent and streamlined processes performing capital planning and risk management, participants are adopting technological disruptions, such as blockchain or robotic process automation (RPA), that changes the manner in which the market participants buy or sell equity and debt instruments.

In addition to being cost-effective, RPA provides the means for a competitive edge, by using advanced data analytics, which reduces human error and offers higher accuracy and quality. Assigning data analytics and management the crucial role of strategic functioning, businesses are changing their requirements as they move towards a more client-centric approach.

Enabling firms to work on common datasets in real time, with minimal supporting options, blockchain allows market participants a system that is simplified, cost-effective and transparent. Another highly adapted trend that reduces both expenses and infrastructure is the migration to the cloud that helps transform IT-related capital to usage-based operational expense. Cloud computing and hence, digitization of various parts of the value chains increases the risk of exposure in terms of security. Hence, cyber-security is essential for the protection of clients’ data in order to avoid damage to the brand, decline in clients trust and legal suits or investigation.

To extract the full value of technological evolution in the capital market landscape, enterprises often depend on solution providers to fulfill business mission and requirements while providing the right expertise to address the varied and complex needs of the industry. In this scenario, it is imperative that CIO’s and CEO’s invest in the right technology that suits their specific necessities.
