Today’s trading operations are global, with traders operating in many time zones. This can cause complexity and increase costs. With around-the-clock trading, financial institutions need to manage and consolidate all of their global trading activities on a single platform. An intuitive and flexible system is essential to allow traders to operate globally.
System scalability is key for financial institutions aspiring to grow revenues. Global trading dramatically increases the volumes traded. Additionally, regulatory compliance imposes a major rise in computational performance.
The world financial crisis has acted as a catalyst for change for banks and regulators. European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR), Dodd Franck and Basel III are new regulations that deeply impact the Treasury. Market practice changes such as modern Multiple-Curve pricing, CSA-discounting, credit and liquidity charge computation at price discovery, have now became market standards.
