The post-trade space is transforming rapidly driven by a combination of market changes including regulatory reform, changing business model, cost cutting programs, and technological innovation. These market changes demand much more of post-trade processes and its team – requiring the entire business to be agile, real-time ready, efficient and technologically innovative. The structure of a transformed and future-proof post-trade operating model will vary by firm, but overall the operations, IT and respective teams will be impacted most significantly as they plan and execute the strategic changes that will enable the business to stay ahead of the market.

The panel will share views on the practical implications of business and process transformation for post trade with a focus on how the operations, technology and culture of these teams will need to change to run a post-trade operation capable of keeping up with market changes and remaining competitive.
