New regulations including Basel III, Dodd-Frank, the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) and MiFID II—and the ongoing competition to lower cost-per-trade—are the major business drivers for the transformation of legacy capital markets clearing and settlement systems.
Improving Efficiency of Clearing and Settlement Operations
Competition and new regulations are putting pressure on the back-office clearing and settlement operations. Global connectivity, complex segregation models, margin methodologies and trade-reporting requirements require higher-performance, straight through processing (STP) systems to keep up with business demands. Transforming legacy post-trade systems can help capital markets firms better serve all their constituencies, both inside and outside the organization.
