The high volatility and downturns global Banks encountered in recent years specifically in the FX and Fixed Income markets have reached levels unparalleled for decades. That strong market oscillation results in efforts at leading banks to downsize their trading departments in terms of headcount. Instead, reliance on (semi-) automated Algo-Trading Platforms and Front Office Trading Systems enhanced with workflow tools is increased.
Both developments are being accompanied by stricter market supervision and new requirements for Regulator Reporting. In short, the Capital Markets IT world is facing once of the toughest periods in it's history. With this market environment succesful upgrades and mergers of Trading Systems, implementations of new products and development of new reporting logics require experts that know their products and software solutions inside and out.
