I came across this little infographic about trends in E-commerce, specifically investment banking. It summarises trends impacting e-commerce and electronic trading within capital markets and the investment banking industry. (FI, FX, and Equities)
The inforgraphic is from 2013 so I believe we are aware of most of the observations already, but it is a handy compilation of the direction e-commerce is going. The last section is particularly interesting, commenting on possible directions:
- Specialisation in a given region with focus on specific trading patterns, regulations and client behaviour.
- Profits are generated by fees from value added services such as risk, execution advisory, clearing.
- Unique product offering on in depth product knowledge
- Focusing on specific client types: Comprehensive portfolio of services tailored for a specific client type
