New paper by Deutsche Börse and Celent: Future of Fintech in capital markets

Frankfurt - 12 August 2016

The paper Future of Fintech in capital markets covers the areas core market infrastructure, post-trade digitisation, artificial intelligence and analytics as well as investment technology digitisation and alternative funding platforms. It also shows how Fintech offers new business opportunities for financial market infrastructure firms and how Deutsche Börse can raise its competencies to an even higher level.

The term Fintech describes how a new generation of cloud and mobile technologies impact processes in financial services. Just like open service architectures, Fintech uses application programming interfaces (APIs) combined with business models in the internet economy.

"The future exchange and market infrastructure organisation will have a larger responsibility in fostering growth and innovation throughout financial markets. Technology is at the core of our business, so partnering with Fintech firms with innovative technology and business models which are relevant for our clients is an absolute priority for us. Financial markets are ripe for transformation and we intend to have a leading role in these times of change." — Carsten Kengeter, CEO, Deutsche Börse.

At first, Fintech was mainly seen as a disruptive technology for large financial companies. Now that the level of customer protection is continuously raised by regulators and market circumstances Fintech is evolving into a direction where the financial incumbents become platform hosts and are interoperating with new and smaller players. As a result, the financial industry will definitely change and foster the integration of services, as long as customer protection is maintained.

Technology has always been a source of structural change, especially for exchanges. What has changed is the pace at which this happens. Deutsche Börse is well prepared for these developments and strives to provide its customers with cost efficiencies, better solutions, and new monetization opportunities.

The paper was produced by Deutsche Börse AG’s corporate venture arm, DB1 Ventures in partnership with Celent, a division of Oliver Wyman.
