The capital markets business, i.e. structuring, trading and institutional sales of derivatives and securities, is an important part of the business model of many banks, providing customers with products and services related to risk management, asset investment and refinancing.

Regulatory updates, changes in customer behaviour (“disintermediation”) and new competitors (e.g. trading venues) are examples of the drivers creating a need for comprehensive strategic and operational transformation in the capital markets business.
