Market participants

For Brokers / Markets / Exchanges and all aspects of financial markets we can provide lateral thinking input as well as services to enhance process and markets operation and organisation.

One of our key strong points is the ability to significantly lower operating costs within organisations through better deployment of technology and process as befits the digital age.

Strategic review

If you want a fundamental lateral review of your operations, we recommend a session with our Executive Director, Patrick L Young, author of Capital Market Revolution and an experienced director of trading firms and brokerages as well a a former exchange CEO. He has the ability as both a manager and an investor to probe your operation and create an entirely new way of working to take your company forward in a digital age.

Government and Regulators

Often on a discrete basis, we have advised regulators and governments throughout the world on how best to help create sensible regulatory environments that maximise employment and services at the same time as protecting the economy from excessive financial operations.
