TACTICAL AND STRATEGIC DEVELOPMENT OF SECURITIES PROCESSING AND HOW TO LAY FOUNDATIONS FOR TECHNOLOGICAL INNOVATION IN AN UNCERTAIN REGULATORY ENVIRONMENT
Is your securities processing ready for future technological innovations? Are your end-to-end processes optimized, compliant and aligned with your business strategy?
Securities processing in many financial institutions is subject to major ongoing initiatives in regulatory and market compliance. With the goal of driving their target operating models in alignment with their business strategies, financial institutions focus on the end-to-end process rather than on optimizing sub-processes. This necessitates change to organizational setups and the mindset of process owners.
This paper discusses how banks can prepare for future technological innovations, with a focus on the post-trade process where we see most of the ongoing and planned activities taking place. We also present an outlook into the coming years and opportunities in securities processing, highlight where and how modern technologies and services can be used to perfect processes, and examine new products that are ‘thinkable’ in banking.
