Trade & Settlements

The securities market has shown extraordinary volatility after the global economy suffered through the recession in 2008. Trading infrastructure entities continue to work their way in to secure trading environments with a drive for operational efficiency, flexibility and agility. Post-trade domain entities are offering value-added services around the consumerization of settlement services. Various market participants are focusing on uplifting and augmenting their electronic execution by increasingly investing in electronic trading tools - including algorithmic trading, bringing in stricter procedures in risk management and compliance and controlling the overall costs through outsourcing.
