At a recent summit on synthetic finance, Laura Craft, co-chair of the FIX Trading Community Global Post-Trade Working Group and director of product strategy at Traiana, moderated a panel discussion which focussed on the role of post-trade in equity swaps. The panel was comprised of HSBC’s Dominic Amura, JP Morgan’s Stuart Neale and TT International’s Ian Lloyd, who all outlined the progress that has already been made in the post-trade processing arena under the impact of changing post-trade regulatory and business requirements, while still pointing out the remaining challenges.
