About the Whitepaper
Efficient management of external fees and expenses, incurred within daily operations, is key to today’s financial institutions. The way forward lies in data-driven decision-making and delivering cost transparency, while the front-office, operations, network management, procurement, and many more departments throughout the organisation have a role to play too.
But how do you achieve maturity in dealing with brokerage, clearing & exchange (BC&E)? How do you facilitate strategic management of fees? Is it better to have the required technology and talent in-house or work with 3rd-party-vendors?
We gave banking leaders the opportunity to address current challenges in managing fees and expense management, and exchange best practices that are driving business profitability and cost-efficiency.
