It is hard to think of a time when there has been so much activity in the treasury and capital markets systems sector. From mergers and acquisitions amongst several of the leading suppliers, to banks investing to improve risk and liquidity management, efficiency and customer service. In such a rapidly changing environment, our Treasury & Capital Markets Systems Market Report offers a timely, fully up-to-date resource and independent reference point for anybody involved with this sector.
It has been a tough year or so for purveyors of the higher-end, derivatives-oriented TCM solutions in particular. A driver used to be enthusiasm for new and exotic instruments but that has clearly abated. Another driver was consolidation of systems, reducing the siloes, but these often large-scale projects have become less common. Nevertheless, there are still good reasons for investing, including improved risk and liquidity management, improved efficiency and better customer service. All of these are hot topics as the market comes to focus on going back to basics. There are still unknowns. For example, proposed banking reforms in the US (which might well be taken up elsewhere) could have a disruptive impact, dampening demand at the outset due to uncertainty but then bringing demand as banks are forced to break up their businesses and the infrastructures that underpin them.
The generalist systems are largely in the Retail Banking Systems Market Report with private banking and wealth management covered in our Wealth Management Systems Market Report. In this Treasury & Capital Markets Systems (TCM) Market Report Online there are a number of new entries, including GBST, Infosys and TwoFour Systems, with emerging solutions or with offerings that are being moved into this space. We have also sought to do more analysis and comparison of each within the introductory section. The TCM Market Report has come to focus ever more on the out-and-out treasury and capital markets players. There are others, with broad systems, that have some functionality in this area, with modules but without the sophistication of the specialists.

This report does not cover pure trading systems, such as those from Charles River and BlackRock. Nor does it cover systems that are limited to a single asset class, such as Rolfe & Nolan's long-standing futures and options platform. It also excludes other specialist systems such as those from Framesoft (OTC contract management, sales and trading solutions provider) or Goldensource (reference data systems specialist). However, components from the likes of these might make up a user's overall architecture.A much wider array of processing systems, including niche ones for areas such as securities, lending, and trade finance, as well as the broader offerings, are covered in our Back Office Systems & Suppliers (BOSS) Guide.
We do need to talk not only to the suppliers but to an array of users to put together the entries. Where systems such as Sungard's Front Arena appear to be moving into the back office, we have arranged meetings with the pioneer customers to evaluate this and had briefings from each supplier. Our research is ongoing, our knowledge is added to through our consultancy projects (including system selections and reviews in the treasury and capital markets space), and all of this culminates in these hefty Market Report tomes.
All of the market issues (of which there are plenty at present), systems and suppliers are covered in-depth on an ongoing basis within our flagship IBS Journal. As should be clear from reading the entries, all of the editorial is our own, so is completely independent, as we seek to provide as well-rounded a picture as possible of this interesting set of suppliers and systems.
