Sybase, Inc., an SAP company (NYSE:SAP) and industry leader in enterprise and mobile software, today announced the release of the Sybase Capital Markets Guide 2011, a compilation of insightful and practical articles authored by Sybase executives, partners, academics, and industry analysts. Now in its second year, the guide examines ways in which capital markets firms can seize new opportunities and thrive in new markets and under an evolving regulatory regime. Welcoming readers to the Sybase Capital Markets Guide 2011, Sybase chairman and CEO, John Chen writes: “The previous decade’s financial crisis taught us that, despite the rhetoric, no bank is too big to fail. Size breeds complexity, making the largest financial institutions’ operations impossible to understand, much less administer. Still, institutions can learn to manage complexity and be on the path toward effectiveness, enlightenment and profit.” While the 2010 guide tackled a dynamic regulatory environment, this year’s guide covers expanding markets and new opportunities. “Sybase is in a unique position to facilitate this conversation for the industry given our deep relationship and extensive work with the capital markets community,” said Steve Capelli, President of Worldwide Field Operations, Sybase. “The guide aims is to provide cutting-edge insights from some of the most knowledgeable people in capital markets to help move the industry forward.” With contributions from industry experts with a global voice, including Accenture, Deloitte, TABB, National Australia Bank, Aite Group, Client Knowledge, Trader Tools, Headstrong, Quantia, Panopticon, Numerix, and professors from Columbia University and UC Berkeley, the 2011 guide is broken into five sections, covering key industry themes of: Advanced Trading, CEP Breaks Out, New Risk Strategies, Changing Landscape, and Quality Real-Time Data. In a new era of ever faster trading activity, lingering uncertainty across asset classes, sovereign debt and heightened regulatory oversight, the time tested perspectives and framing discussions in the Sybase Capital Markets Guide 2011 provide much needed perspectives for market participants everywhere.
