Transformational Change:
Mobilizing a Global Trading Community with Financial Extranets

The thrust of innovation today is to build global trading communities connecting liquidity venues, on or off exchange, across asset classes and jurisdictions with all their market participants and the ecosystem of end-to-end supply chain partners. Connectivity is the great enabler, and financial extranets, the delivery channel of choice.  Understanding these trends can empower firms to choose the best long-term partners for growth in these difficult times.

  • With liquidity shifts quickly from one market to another, how can traders connect to an increasingly diverse range of counterparties, venues and electronic services, geographically dispersed around the world?
  • How can firms find new opportunities and explore revenue opportunities in digital services, while controlling costs and risks?
  • With extranets in today’s global markets, how do decide with whom to connect?
  • When maintaining corporate agility, what matters most – size of footprint, scalable bandwidth, flexible cost structure?
  • How can firms ensure dependable latencies and returns in volatile markets?
  • What’s the key to service excellence
  • How can transparency with online monitoring tools enable service excellence?
