Is your business as cost efficient as it can be ?

These are complex times for hedge funds, accompanied by increasing costs.

There are however positive outcomes, including:

  • The costs of trading are increasing but with smart access to data and technology, some of these costs can be mitigated.
  • Bank regulatory reform means higher balance sheet costs, but in Societe Generale’s case, this comes with a new focus on the specific concerns of prime brokerage clients.
  • Non-bank markets for securities finance carry new opportunities and may become a viable means of accessing leverage, sometimes with the support of a bank to manage operations and valuation.
