The Digitalization of Sell-Side Risk Management

System upgrades and advanced technology will better position the sell-side to weather turbulent markets.

Boston, April 22, 2020 – The novel coronavirus has resulted in mayhem as market volatility and uncertainty surge. This environment has brought the need for digitalization of risk technology front and center to monitor this global event. Against this backdrop, the boundaries of technology are being tested by the need for rigorous calculations as well as data management and consumption. The costs associated with buying or building new tech and hiring additional expertise, along with the price tags linked to reporting and compliance, are challenging many institutions at a time when balance sheets continue to shrink and risk is on the rise. 

This report describes a series of trends in risk management being shaped by the recent wave of volatility, onslaught of regulatory requirements, ever-increasing data, and market structure changes impacting sell-side institutions. It is based on Aite Group interviews with 15 Tier-2 and Tier-3 global banks from August 2018 through February 2020, Aite Group interviews with 19 international data management executives at capital markets firms in Q3 and Q4 2019, and an Aite Group survey of executives from 28 financial institutions worldwide from Q4 2018 to Q2 2019.

This 15-page Impact Report contains six figures and one table. Clients of Aite Group’s Institutional Securities & Investments service can download this report, the corresponding charts, and the Executive Impact Deck.
