HCL Novus Post Trade


The post-trade business landscape is at an inflection point as newer technologies and cut-throat competition continue to reshape business models.

Legacy applications hindering flexibility for large-scale transformation, silo-ed business processes, shrinking margins, and crunch of right skills for niche technology are some of the many impediments that must be addressed.

While these challenges pose hurdles, they also present an opportunity for firms to provide Post-Trade solutions. Increasing regulatory oversight and the need to be compliant, mitigation of operational risk through stable and predictable operations and cost reduction amidst shrinking margins are some of the factors that drive the market.

HCLTech Novus Post-Trade solutions are a combination of application services and business operations delivered through innovative engagement models. These help both buy and sell-side participants achieve alternate revenue streams and disruptive cost arbitrage while ensuring stability, control, compliance, and improved efficiencies.
