From the Advisory Institute
Today, banks in capital markets' businesses are facing a considerable need to transform their operations, as they are under siege on cost, return on equity (ROE), profit, capital, liquidity, revenue and trading-volume fronts.
The industry's new operating model will need to reflect the reality that capital markets primarily must be an information-technology-enabled, highly automated industry with many fewer people and an almost total reliance on electronic and algorithmic trading.
This paper discusses how competitive advantage in this industry is now defined by scale and technology capability. Organizations that adapt and make the necessary investments and commitments to rebuild stand a much better chance of survival than those that hang on to the past and wish for a "return to normalcy."
