IT and Trader White Paper

IT and Traders White Paper

Investing in technology are high on the agenda of trading firms, but the payoff from that investment may be lagging because of  a lack of understanding about the needs of traders among  IT departments as to the technology traders need. This is the sentiment received from both traders and from within IT departments according to a survey of trading and IT professionals conducted by IPC.

Among other the survey’s other findings:

  • IT Department admit to not fully understanding the trading workflow and the technology needed to support it

  • The majority of IT Departments regularly meet or communicate with traders about technology needs and benefits

  • Traders believe that technology has had an overwhelmingly positive impact on their firms and their jobs

Little understanding but big benefits
