Post-trade service providers and the hunt for value

On Thursday, 7 December 2017, SIX Securities Services hosted another edition of its Post-Trade Forum in London. The question of how the post-trade industry can continue to grow in value for its clients and, ultimately, the end investor was discussed and debated together with industry participants and opinion leaders. With Brexit on the horizon, an explosion in alternative technologies, a rise in global market optimism and growing pressures to continue to manage costs, is this a realistic goal for the industry to achieve?

Recent research by SIX Securities Services confirms that this is a central concern for the industry: 67% of those surveyed agree that post-trade service providers will need to focus on new service creation and revenue opportunities by 2027, if they are to continue creating value beyond being “simply operational”.

So where do post-trade service providers go from here?
