Securities and Investments Research

Celent's securities and investments research covers the buy side, the sell side, and market destinations and falls under three overarching themes:

The move from the physical to the virtual world, from person-to-person interaction toward person-to-machine or machine-to-machine. Integrating and coordinating among disparate and siloed delivery channels will be critical to satisfying ever-increasing customer expectations. 

 Innovation & Emerging Technologies

Celent defines innovation as fundamental changes to products, services, or business models that break existing tradeoffs and provide value to the customer. New hardware, software and network technologies feed innovation within the financial services industry.

 Legacy & Ecosystem Transformation

Legacy technology can hinder innovation, since financial institutions must typically offer backward compatibility. Financial institutions must not only modernize, but transform, their internal systems and the ways in which they interact with a vast web of customers, counterparties and regulators.

Our internationally-based analysts focus on information technology issues that affect global, regional and local financial institutions. Celent reports tend to fall into one or more of the following categories: trends analysis, vendor evaluations, case studies, or market data. Recent reports have covered topics such as foreign exchange, derivatives, market data, commodity markets, prime brokerage, and emerging markets.
