We believe both innovation and adaptation are required.

We’re debating the impact of cost to trade and success strategies at Banking Reloaded Conference on October 29, New York. Don’t miss this chance to meet the experts and find out how to reduce costs and boost profitability.

The first hurdle for trading entities starts with complicated capital charges for products, based on whether they are exchange or bi-laterally traded. In addition, regulatory capital influences favor higher-rated counterparties adding another layer of complexity to the mix, and front office implications are just the beginning.
