In an environment where compressed profit margins and general control remain high priorities, many approaches are being taken to increase automation. One of the most popular and potentially most expeditious approaches to these problems is Robotic Process Automation, or RPA.
In capital markets, post-trade processes that are manual or semi-manual are an ongoing source of costs and operational risk. Regulators are focused on workflows and processes that involve high degrees of human intervention with the corresponding possibilities of error; operational managers are under pressure to reduce resource costs arising from manual staffing.
The last two years have seen a proliferation of vendor products, internal developments and consultancy services centered on RPA. In this Fintech Capital Markets report we look at the fundamental nature of these technologies, their strengths and weaknesses, and build out a generic business case that supports their implementation.
This report should be read by operational managers, technology strategists and decision makers considering RPA solutions for increased automation and control over manual workflows.
