Global Inventory Management has become critical to both buy side and sell side firms transacting in collateralized business lines in recent years. The paper and infographic by Broadridge’s Martin Seagroatt and Gilbert Scherff maps out an architecture for a new more integrated, automated and industrialized collateral ecosystem. The paper also:
