Investment Banking

The speed and complexity in trading in the financial markets today, demands a competent partner who has a profound understanding of asset classes, trading and market regulations.

Firstwaters applies its advisory, business and technical expertise on the entire Investment Banking value chain from trading and settlement, to regulatory matters impacting financial services and capital markets.

The banking world is facing new challenges driven primarily by a tightening of regulatory standards. Market regulators are sanctioning new more stringent and intrusive regulatory requirements in order to promote better transparency in the way the financial markets conduct business and protect investors.

Market developments in the area of OTC derivatives trading, and regulatory developments such as Basel III, CRD IV, EMIR and MIFID II are in our focus as well as the implementation and integration of market leading standard Software systems Calypso and Murex.

We have extensive project experience, business and technical know-how as well as a proven track record of success in supporting and managing complex projects across the whole investment banking value chain.

Our clients include large investment banks, financial service providers and trading departments.
