When we talk about Symphony 2.0, we emphasize that the product is purpose-built for financial services workflows. But even that is too simplistic – we recognize that within the industry, there is a wide variety of roles, responsibilities, needs and preferences. Investment bankers, research analysts, compliance professionals: all within financial services, but all with very different workflows.

The importance of diversity of thought as firms navigate data democratization across people, processes, and platforms
The value of diversity of thought in business is well-established: Companies where 30 percent of executives or more are women are nearly 50 percent more likely to outperform financially, and 67 percent of candidates consider workforce diversity when evaluating job offers. A range of backgrounds and experiences facilitates creativity, problem-solving and positive outcomes.
In a recent webinar, David Gurlé, formerly of Symphony, and Steven Quick, Principal Solution Architect – Financial Services with Amazon Web Services (“AWS”), discussed how many financial institutions are working to transform faster while also meeting ever more stringent compliance requirements on data safety, security and transparency.

Capital markets have undergone a seismic shift in recent years, particularly with the accelerated adoption of technology and cloud-based solutions over the last 15 months. One thing that has not changed, however, is the importance voice trading continues to play in the institutional landscape. And with the increasing levels of sophistication that are enabling individuals on and off the trading floor to communicate with each other – particularly through more advanced APIs – there is now a greater appetite than ever before for cloud-based trading solutions.
