Charting a Path to a Post Trade Utility

How mutualized trade processing can reduce costs and help rebuild global bank ROE.

Over the next five years, new regulations and market dynamics could drive down return-on-equity by up to 5 percentage points. The current cost paradigm is simply not sustainable.

Many banks are revisiting the concept of utilities as a way to mutualize costs. Given our five decades of serving capital markets in trade processing and related functions, Broadridge brings a unique perspective on utility models and offers a vantage point on the path forward for a post-trade utility.

Why now? The industry is nearing an inflection point where the cost-savings potential exceeds the challenges that have undermined prior efforts. Experts estimate that a trade processing utility could reduce costs by up to 40%, saving the industry as much as $4 Billion.
