The last few years have seen many changes in the cleared derivatives industry. A few FCMs have left the business, and a few new ones have joined. Firms are becoming swap dealers, and emergent companies are looking at how new technology may disrupt the industry. Products have been launched that bring new participants to the market and cause incumbents to reevaluate their processes for trading and clearing. Technology providers have consolidated, leading to vertical integration between front office and back office technology. These are just some of the trends that have occurred recently – but what do they mean for the health of the industry?

For many years trading desks have used a wide range of technology that works in isolation.  From the sophisticated through to the simple – big data, quantitative models, trading screens, spreadsheets, news feeds, chatrooms, phones and pens – the common factor is the human in the middle.  Manual actions consume time and are prone to error.  What if these processes could work together seamlessly without human input?
