Since the advent of the earliest adding machines and mainframe computers, technology, and the innovations it has helped to bring about, has played an increasingly important role in the evolution of the ﬁnancial services industry. Traditionally, the pace and impact of these technological advances has been gauged using easily quantiﬁable metrics such as storage capacity and processing speed.
Today, however, when it comes to the application and potential of technology in the ﬁnancial services industry, we’re witnessing the emergence of a number of new and rapidly accelerating trends that promise to usher in an entirely new paradigm — one in which Information Technology (IT) is not simply an “add-on” at the periphery of the business function, but rather deeply embedded at its very core. The lines between what we’ve traditionally viewed as the “technology” part of an organisation and the rest of the business are blurring like never before.
For industry players, the business implications of this convergence will be impossible to ignore. In response to clients’ demands for more and faster information, greater transparency and improved risk management, providers are applying the vast computing power at their disposal toward an increasingly complex, sophisticated and integrated array of tasks. As a result, today’s investors are able to see detailed, nearly instantaneous views of their exposures and portfolios at any time. They’re able to consider billions of scenarios for millions of investment positions. And the models they’re considering are being built by an entirely new breed of ﬁnancial practitioner — one who possesses a keen understanding not only of critical business processes, but also of the technology that drives them EXANTE’s is a prime example of how a successful brokerage firm with its head office in Malta and offices in Singapore, Russia and Amsterdam have amalgamated technology and finance within their company.
