2017 Briefing: What You Need to Know for the Year Ahead in Capital Markets

To Our Readers:
A belated Happy New Year to our Numerix Blog readers, we raise our glass to you – our clients, peers and partners – thank you for entrusting us to bring you insights and research in 2016. As we toast to new beginnings, we at Numerix are especially excited for the promise that 2017 holds as we continue to broaden our horizons beyond pricing and risk analytics to serve our clients in a greater capacity as a technology leader in capital markets.  

2017 will not fall short in presenting a host of issues to discuss. A dense regulatory environment, a new White House administration, elections across Europe – and above all the business impact each may have – top the list for the general knowns and unknowns for what the new year will bring.

With that the Numerix Blog team has our eyes fixed on key challenges ahead for the year and our latest issue of Derivative Insights and Innovations, our monthly newsletter) took on the task of laying out a critical briefing focusing on just these key priorities for 2017. Through this collection of must-read resources for tackling 2017, we highlight how taking strategic steps now can set the right course for FRTB and risk management, as well as lead to differentiating opportunities over the longer-term horizon, and also bring into focus the new paradigm through which to view technology, architecture and data management.

We've converted the issue into blog form below, and if you find it useful we encourage you to subscribe to our newsletter mailing list so that you can get complimentary access to resources and insights like this throughout the year. Additionally, we are here to serve you, so if there are issues you'd like us to cover in the year ahead, email us directly by clicking here.
