Industry Threats & Opportunities

  • The industry’s largest players should benefit from the uptick in interest rate volatility in the years ahead
  • Trade volumes continue to fall, most notably in equity securities that underpin industry revenue
  • The industry will benefit from increased fees on trades as well as through new technologies that will further drive down average trading costs
  • Industry Analysis & Industry Trends

However, this decline does not tell the full story of the industry's immense recessionary losses and rapidly evolving competitive landscape. Industry revenue is still failing to exceed prerecessionary highs. Yet, the industry's smaller operators continue to evolve. Since competing in FICC requires scale and massive investments in technology and compliance, boutique investment banks have alternatively focused on merger and acquisition.
