Connectivity and Network Services

Market Access and a Global Network for Enhanced Trade Processing and Information Flow across Assets

Today’s investors, both institutional and retail, increasingly demand access to global markets; brokers, banks and trading firms need to find cost-effective ways to meet this demand. And sell-side firms are challenged to develop more innovative securities processing solutions for buy-side customers who are often unable to implement them.

Meanwhile, with greater complexity in global trading environments, buy-side firms contend with increased trading risk, compliance burdens, global competition and aging legacy platforms.

FIS’ connectivity solutions and global trading network help firms increase their reach and alleviate issues on both sides.
