Capital Markets: Post-Trade Publications

Read Accenture’s series of publications on the current challenges facing operations functions in post-trade across capital markets firms.


Investment banks, wealth and asset managers and financial intermediaries, including central counter parties (CCPs) and exchanges, are facing an unprecedented level of change fuelled by three distinct drivers: a growing regulatory agenda, increasing pressure to simplify architectures and cut costs, and a rapidly shifting digital landscape.

Senior Managers Regime: Strengthening Accountability in Change Governance

With the Senior Managers and Certification Regime (SM&CR) taking effect in the UK in March 2016, capital markets firms are facing a new set of compliance challenges and opportunities. The SM&CR increases the scope and accountability of approved persons, providing an occasion for firms to reconsider their change governance. It’s a welcome opportunity given the numerous major regulatory and commercially driven change programs underway in many organizations.

In this paper, we take a high-level look at SM&CR requirements and examine how firms can improve oversight of their change portfolios.
