The self-directed trader segment has more than doubled in the past 10 years; however, the number of overall traders has flattened out over the last three years, according to recent Aite Group findings. This market shift, alongside challenges of growing competition and plateauing profits, has tasked firms with re-engaging traders, encouraging active investment participation, and capturing the imagination of Next Gen investors. In large part, the unwinding of these concerns lies in new, technology-driven sources of revenue enabling firms to cater to the needs of the modern trader while accelerating transaction volume.
In the face of these emerging imperatives, Scivantage recently teamed up with Aite Group and OptionsPlay for a webinar examining the modern active trader landscape alongside the technology drivers impacting complex trading functionality. In “The Power Play: Leveraging Options Trading to Accelerate Customer Transaction Activity,” industry experts Javier Paz, Senior Analyst, Aite Group, Tony Zhang, Head of Product Strategy, OptionsPlay and Chris Psaltos, VP of Product Management, Scivantage discussed the dramatic shifts driving advancements in complex trading functionality, with options trading at the top of the list.
