Banks and brokerage firms must use every means at their disposal to expand distribution channels, improve the management of their investment operations, comply with changing regulations and deepen their client relationships. As a leading global financial services provider, State Street has the tools and resources to help you meet these challenges, so you can remain focused on your core business.
Improved digital connectivity and operations management
New regulatory initiatives, including the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID) in the European Union and the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act in the United States have established new standards for risk management and transparency, and will likely funnel more securities trading through central clearing and regulated intermediaries. Technology will be the tool for enforcing these new regulations. State Street’s award-winning eExchange platforms are recognized as among the best in the industry.
Banks and brokers use our eExchange electronic trading solutions for foreign exchange (FX), US treasury securities, futures, money markets and exchange traded funds (ETFs).
