The evolving capital markets landscape is forcing significant changes to traditional business models. Every element of the front-to-back lifecycle is being disrupted by macro level political change (e.g. Brexit), regulatory change (e.g. LIBOR and capital adequacy), and internal drivers (e.g. M&A).

– Delivery of regulatory change initiatives
– Trade migrations, compression and ringfencing
– Legal entity restructuring
– Novations and repapering activities
– Target operating model definition and execution
– System migrations, consolidation and retirement
– New trading and settlement platform implementations
– Risk systems including liquidity and treasury platforms
Sales and Trading operations are at the heart of capital markets enterprises. All asset classes are heavily reliant on technology to automate trading; generate trading ideas and efficient execution. Across the industry, there continues to be significant investment in eTrading technology and techniques. Increasingly stringent regulation, oversight and enforcement in all financial centres mean that full life-cycle control of eTrading platforms has become a board-level priority.
Citihub Consulting’s eTrading consultants cover the full range of asset classes, high & low touch trading flows, and trading technologies from venue connectors through to tick history infrastructure. We have been at the centre of preparing and implementing the eTrading strategies of the top tier investment banks and exchanges since 1999. Our eTrading consultants have intimate, practical knowledge of eTrading technologies, and the regulations at major financial centres.
