Capital markets

Significant global regulatory change has impacted the business and revenue of capital markets firms. Business models, product offerings, risk management, and capital requirements are all under review.

New regulatory requirements, reduced spreads and increased risk management requirements have put enormous pressure on what were once profitable products and customer relationships. While scale at some institutions may allow for increased cost efficiencies, that alone will not drive future growth. The current landscape has created an opening where firms who develop innovative new strategies can create competitive advantage while those who do not risk falling behind.

PwC assists leading broker/dealers, investment banks, exchanges, clearing houses and asset/wealth management firms on some of their most complex challenges.
