What brokers want: Technology, reliability and interoperability

What brokers want: Technology, reliability and interoperability

This survey report, created by WatersTechnology in association with ION Markets, sheds light on the extent to which brokers make use of single, integrated front-office platforms; industry technology sourcing/development preferences; the most acute front-office operational and technology challenges; what is valued most in trading technology partners; and the specific technologies brokers would implement in an ideal world.

Key findings include:

  • 38% of respondents rely on in-house-developed/proprietary front-office tools to manage their trading and communication functions, while a similar proportion (34%) opt for a blend of third-party and proprietary tools.
  • In terms of what respondents most value in a prospective trading technology provider, reputation and track record was the by far the most popular option, selected by 69% of respondents.
