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.
