The broker dealer community has a very specific set of requirements. Like banks, they are under pressure to maintain operational efficiency while also meeting the demands of their clients. Their business is ever more complex as business becomes increasingly cross-border
We recognise that the broker dealer segment needs efficient fund-transfer mechanisms and liquidity management facilities.
Prudential liquidity and capital regulatory changes
Regulations like Dodd-Frank, Basel III and the Capital Requirements Directive (CRDIV) place pressure on banks around issues such as the quality and level of capital required, risk coverage, leverage, global liquidity standards and supervisory monitoring.
Market and trading regulations
Market and trading regulations and the drive for a central clearing regime for OTC Derivatives all present challenges for the industry. For example, the latter calls for increased margin and collateral requirements, higher risk weightings, stricter reporting requirements.
Funding and investment options
The increased capital and liquidity requirements and the decrease in funding sources, along with regulatory pressure, prevent some institutions from conducting certain investment activities.
