Banks Must Streamline Trade Reporting to Cope with Expanding Regulations

For the first time in my 25+ year capital markets technology career, a group that traditionally has had the clunkiest systems and the smallest budget is suddenly in the spotlight – post-trade trade reporting.

This has all changed with the current wave of regulation, which is requiring banks to streamline trade reporting like never before.
