Despite negative sentiment across broader financial markets, increased volatility presents a host of opportunities for sophisticated investors, eager to take advantage of market fluctuations in their leveraged trading strategy. For many organizations, the turbulence across financial markets, and the black swan events occurring at alarmingly regular intervals, has expedited the necessity for natural buyers and sellers to be connected.

David Brown produced an exclusive thought leadership piece for Digital CFO Asia on the role of technology in navigating volatility, the acceleration of digital transformation across financial services, and how low-latency connectivity is fast-becoming the cornerstone of global leadership. As US stocks slide back into a bear market, and the ramifications across financial ecosystems continue to be felt, global financial market participants will need to utilize multi-cloud platform ecosystems to trade faster and become more agile to enhance competitive advantages; a reality that is being felt by both traditional financial traders and cryptocurrency traders alike.
