NYC, Wednesday 15 April 2015 — CameronTec Group, the global standard in financial messaging infrastructure and tools for the Capital Markets industry, today announced at the Americas FIX Trading Briefing in New York, the release of its latest White Paper: Making the Case for Upgrading Sell Side Client Connectivity.
While historically the fallback position for many firms operating within the financial services industry has been to remediate trading systems issues with quick fixes, in the past few years we have seen a major shift in focus around architecting and harmonizing front office systems across trading desks and asset classes, in order to reduce the disparate silos and redundant technology that can undermine a firm’s long term profitability.
Michel Balter, Chief Strategy Officer for CameronTec Group, says: “Operating successfully in today’s markets, amid the harsh realities of shrinking returns and increasing costs, requires firms to not only differentiate on Service, but importantly to reduce the overall complexity surrounding their electronic trading environments.”
With neither sell-side or buy-side guaranteeing profit margins under current market conditions, firms with longer term strategies, mandates and targets are now tasked with investigating technology that will future-proof their trading systems. Indeed, meeting regulatory requirements and addressing and implementing compliance fixes has pushed the Capital Markets industry into unchartered territory; signaling an unprecedented period during the era of trade automation for embracing solution and service innovation.
CameronTec Group spoke with market participants worldwide to put together this detailed white paper summary examining the case for upgrading sell-side client connectivity, and highlighting the conclusions.
