Digitalisation and automation are key issues for the contemporary derivatives market, as automation, data visualisation, and AI are reshaping the industry’s processes and perspectives. This is unsurprising as changes such as the move from voice trading to electronic trading have been occurring within derivative sales and trading over recent years. However, automation, AI, and similar advancements should be considered on their own merits, as they are currently shaking up the trading process. The derivatives market is rapidly becoming a technological battleground as firms compete with each other to have the most effective processes and tools in order to gain an advantage. Some of these changes may seem futuristic, but there are evermore real life examples demonstrating their impact. Their effects have been felt across all asset classes, from the simplest of listed derivatives to the most structured and bespoke products.
