Infographic: IPC Survey on Technology Investing Priorities

IPC conducted a survey of 239 attendees at the FIA Futures and Options Expo (October 19 and 20, 2016) and found for the second year in a row that participants plan to increase their spend on technology.

In the coming year, firms believe they will face challenges, namely, entering new geographies, compliance, uncovering new sources of liquidity, and trading new asset classes. Firms will need to turn to opportunistic and alternative sources of liquidity and tap into new geographies and asset classes. Having access to a diverse financial ecosystem which enables access to liquidity venues, trade lifecycle services, market data, and other counterparties will be critical in tackling these issues.
