White Paper from BNP Paribas
The future of post-trade outsourcing
February 25, 2019
Companies operating in the financial services sector are facing greater pressure than ever to reduce costs, as they confront growing profitability challenges. Asset managers’ clients are looking to reduce the fees they pay, while brokers on both sides of the Atlantic are facing falls in their revenue from research following the introduction of the EU’s MiFID II directive. This piece of regulation has prompted European managers to cut the amount of broker research they pay for, and to negotiate down the price of research they continue to receive.
At the same time, financial services firms are threatened with growing costs and complexity in the back and middle office. This reflects the sheer amount of data that regulators want them to gather and process, as well as the desire for richer and more accurate information to support their trading and analytics. As a result, companies are increasingly looking for solutions that provide them with more advanced functionality and allow them to scale up without the need for extra headcount.
This white paper takes an in-depth look into how buy-side institutions are responding to these pressures and transforming their operations by leveraging strategic outsourcing partnerships in an ever greater number of areas.
