Capital Markets

Opportunities, protection, peace of mind.

Capital markets are rapidly evolving. Technology innovations are creating a faster trading environment and the rules are changing. Our consultants use their deep regulatory experience coupled with our Oyster Solutions CAT Application to provide firms what they need to meet and exceed their CAT reporting obligations.  We can also review all trade reporting requirements including LOPR, TRACE, MSRB, ACT, INSITE, Short Interest, and Margin Reporting.

Trading desks can drive revenue growth and profitability.

They also differentiate products and services and can be a fundamental need for advisor and investment services. Oyster consultants will identify potential opportunities to improve desk efficiency and profitability by reviewing trade processes, controls and operations procedures.

For Broker-Dealers with an investment banking arm, Oyster provides strategies to improve distribution and achieve strong compliance and supervision oversight.

Trade Desk Review

It’s not just about you – it’s about the marketplace, too.

Regulations like Reg SCI and Market Access Rule 15c3-5, designed to protect the marketplace and its clients, continue to be enforced. Working with Oyster to assess risk and test controls gives you peace of mind that you have the proper testing, documentation and programs in place.
