We view Fintech as an opportunity to increase efficiencies in the post-trade domain through greater collaboration and innovation, while unlocking mutual cost-savings. Under increasingly heavy regulatory and compliance roadmaps, we are challenged as to how to bring the advantages of new technology into a highly-regulated landscape whilst maintaining our systemically important FMI role as the reliable and trusted business partner. Collaboration is key. We have embarked on a number of partnerships with Fintech startups aimed at better ways of working to increase efficiency and reduce cost and risk.
