CSS Integration Hub: Integrating Investment Data Systems – Internal build or a vendor solution?

Identifying the strategic need for the implementation of an integration hub for financial transactions, positions and securities.

When consolidating data from front- and back-office applications, an increased need arises for systems integration and a certainty that securities and reference data are in sync.

Regulations such as MiFID II, EMIR, SFTR and EU Short Selling rules increase the need for efficient data deliverables.
