Faced with economic, regulatory and technological pressures, banks today have little choice but to re-examine their operating models to remain competitive. Post-trade processing can play a pivotal role in reducing costs and increasing speed to market, but for now, it’s often a thorn in the side for many banks and brokers. A significant cost, much of it stubbornly fixed and requiring complex management and on-going investment, post-trade processing has been described as anything but a competitive lever—until now.

The future of post-trade processing is changing. Accenture has teamed with technology partner Broadridge to launch what is truly a game-changing solution for post-trade operations in Europe, Asia, Australia and the Middle East.

Let’s take a closer look at Accenture Post-Trade Processing.

The technology and business process outsourcing (BPO) solution is designed to help banks with settlement, books and records, asset servicing, operational management and control, real-time data access and administrative accounting. The common, standardized IT platform can help clients quickly and efficiently launch new financial products and enter new markets without the hurdles of legacy IT systems. In addition, by mutualizing costs across a large volume of trades from multiple institutions combined with a game changing operating model, investment banks will be able to enjoy significant benefits.
