Compared with other industries, the financial markets sector has been relatively slow to adopt the cloud. Much of the inertia has been due to concerns—whether real or perceived—around issues such as complexity, security, regulation/compliance and data sovereignty. Recently, the cloud has become much more viable in the capital markets industry. The adoption of cloud-based solutions is rapidly accelerating for a range of business applications.

In this Financial Markets Insights report from Equinix and The Realization Group, experts from Microsoft, Refinitiv, Pico, Finastra, Beeks Financial Cloud, Lloyds Bank, PwC and Equinix discuss the challenges and opportunities of utilizing public, private and hybrid cloud to build out unique ‘as-a-Service’ offerings.


  • Which applications, data, or services are best suited to a cloud environment infrastructure
  • Case studies of organizations and services that have successfully migrated to the cloud
  • The security and regulatory implications of moving to the cloud
  • The best choice for capital markets—private, hybrid, or public cloud
The level of security in the public cloud is higher than an on-prem data center owned by a bank, because these cloud vendors have invested many millions into security and all those vendors are working closely with the local regulators.
