As the financial industry continues to transition towards a predominantly virtual environment, institutional traders need to be able to easily access the right tools to stay connected and enhance workflow efficiencies. In the fifth episode of Cloud9’s podcast series, Cloud9’s Chief Innovation Officer and Co-founder Leo Papadopoulos, and Chief Operating Officer Jim Miller, examine what voice trading capabilities institutional traders must have in a distributed workplace and how a cloud-based platform can provide a more secure, mobile and accessible ecosystem.
Voice trading continues to be a pivotal element of daily workflows across the institutional marketplace, which means that access to greater voice metadata is imperative for strategic, regulatory and operational purposes. In the fourth episode of Cloud9’s podcast series examining developments in the voice trading landscape, Cloud9’s CAO and Head of Partnerships, Brian Hunt, and Verint’s VP of Product Strategy, Phil Fry, examine the who, where, what and why of accessing greater voice metadata and how this will progress as we near the end of one of the most challenging years in recent memory.
As trading tools become more sophisticated, one thing that financial institutions continue to put at the top of their priority list is flexibility in their solutions. While the industry is gaining a greater appetite for working remotely, enabling greater flexibility in a cloud-based environment can still pose challenges. In episode 3 of Cloud9’s podcast series, Cloud9 SVP of Technology & Operations David Midgett and Business Systems Ltd Sales Director Will Davenport discuss how to address some of these hurdles and how the trading landscape will continue to evolve in the months ahead.
[PODCAST] Navigating compliance parameters and cloud security across the increasingly virtual voice trading environment
The institutional marketplace is gravitating towards a more digitally-advanced ecosystem which is requiring greater technology sophistication and, in turn, more stringent data security and regulation parameters. As traders become more comfortable working remotely, accessibility to robust sets of voice metadata for both strategic and regulatory reporting purposes will be very important. In Episode 2 of the Cloud9 podcast series, Cloud9 CTO and Co-Founder Leo Papadopoulos and SteelEye CEO Matt Smith discuss how the partnership that their companies recently announced addresses these concerns and why it’s so important for firms to equip themselves with the proper security and regulatory reporting tools during this transitional period.
As the appetite for anytime, anywhere access to trading workflows increases, global capital markets are transitioning to “virtual trading desks”. While COVID-19 has acted as a catalyst for this structural shift, this transition will have a permanent impact on trading floors. With cloud-based voice solutions liberating traders from legacy hardware to trade and manage business remotely, Cloud9 and OpenFin are playing a key role in equipping the industry for the trading desktop of the future. Cloud9 Chief Operating Officer Jim Miller and OpenFin President and Chief Operating Officer Chuck Doerr discuss how we’ll get there and what we can expect along the way.
