Today's economic environment is not the only factor driving the increase competition between banks. At the opposite side of the spectrum from the sub-microsecond, high-frequency trading world, banks are developing single-dealer portals in order to outrun the competition.
These portals offer clients a more personalised and holistic investment experience. Generally they are built using Rich Internet Application (RIA) tools such as Silverlight from Microsoft, Flex from Adobe or Ajax.
In order to examine the development of single-dealer portals Finextra and Caplin Systems offer a free webcast that looks at how the financial services industry is leveraging RIA technologies and creating a more full service customer experience.
The video is now available to view on Finextra. You can download the webcast replay here.
What are single-dealer platforms anyway? How are rich internet platforms involved in the development of client portals? What benefits do single-dealer portals bring to banks and clients alike? Where does the industry stand on building in-house versus buying ready-made platforms from existing technology providers?
These questions are discussed and debated in a special roundtable webcast featuring some of the industry's top experts in client interfaces and internet technologies.
