Staying Ahead of the Digital Curve

Every public asset class – equities, credit, rates, FX – has seen a similar transformation from manual, bilateral workflows to data-intensive, highly-automated digital markets with nuanced microstructures. As those markets digitized, early investments in technology platforms and data analyt­ics enabled first movers to get ahead of the curve and capture disproportionate economics and market share. Those who were late to evolve and adapt suf­fered as competitive dynamics changed and the market structure shifted.

A similar transition is cur­rently underway in private markets, fueled by the proliferation of unique data sources and the emergence of dig­ital marketplaces that enable automat­ed underwriting.
