Use Cases Across Financial Markets

The opportunity to apply AI and machine learning across financial markets is expansive. There are thousands of applications for automated machine learning to help ensure that financial markets firms are making 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 differentiator.

Marketing and Cross-Selling

Customized marketing campaigns increase ROI and improve response rates. Automated 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. It also enables investigations to take place before loss occurs. 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 automated machine learning, 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 are driving 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.
