Financial Markets

Financial Markets are at a unique place and time in their evolution. They are faced with some of the biggest challenges in their history: full digitization of markets, technology-driven disruption, fee compression, and lower client switching costs, to name just a few. At the same time, they are embracing some of their biggest opportunities, many made possible by technology: the convergence of data ubiquity, high-speed processing, and the advanced technologies that comprise enterprise AI.

Discover how enterprise AI is driving the Financial Markets revolution.

AI and Financial Markets

As Financial Market firms work to digitize and transform for growth and operational efficiencies, they are aggressively innovating and differentiating, as they compete to secure a larger share of assets and create a next generation client experience. From AI trading to AI fraud detection to the benefits of a machine learning stock market— artificial intelligence helps firms to reimagine their operations. By accelerating initiatives, leveraging their own data, and delivering bottom-line results, companies using machine learning for trading cannot just compete, but win.

Financial Markets use cases

Use Cases Across Financial Markets

The opportunity to apply AI across financial markets is expansive. There are thousands of applications for automated machine learning to help ensure that financial market research and investment firms are empowered to make faster and better decisions.

  • Asset Management

    Optimizing your portfolio is critical to your firm’s success. By deploying the right predictive models, fund managers can anticipate changes in cash position impacting liquidity. As these models improve over time, your portfolio’s performance becomes a competitive differentiator.

  • Marketing and Cross-Selling

    Customized marketing campaigns increase ROI and improve response rates. Machine learning models identify the clients most likely to respond, along with the best offers and the best prospects. Deliver higher success rates with new customer acquisition and cross-sell and upsell programs.

  • Fraud and Financial Crimes

    Fighting financial crime by identifying suspicious activity is critical, especially as criminals get more sophisticated in their tactics. It also enables investigations to take place before losses are posted. Using machine learning, your firm can learn from investigational findings and incurred losses to accurately detect activities like account takeovers or wire fraud, while maintaining effective trade and communication surveillance.

  • Attrition Management

    Clients expect their firm to provide superior customer service. With AI, firms can identify clients at high risk of attrition by learning from examples of clients that have closed or moved accounts in the past. Preemptive client engagement can uncover issues that drive both dissatisfaction and churn.

  • Trading Operations

    Traders are using historical transaction cost analysis (TCA) and execution data to build models that optimize offer routing and trade execution strategy. These models evaluate the relative merits of the numerous potential algorithmic trading approaches, venues, and counterparties. In addition, these support trader decision-making and help to minimize market impact and cost, while demonstrating and recording the trader’s compliance with regulatory requirements.
