Develop innovative products

Access to data and analytics could help point the way for clients and improve the risk/reward relationship when making decisions.

Create a next-generation operating model

Firms should reevaluate their footprint and talent strategy and infuse operating models with next-generation tools like artificial intelligence.

Capital markets firms are facing unprecedented challenges, while at the same time liquidity from global central banks is providing markets with stability. Even during a global recession, companies in the securities industry have some cushion to improve their operating models.
