The New Norm – Working Methods

ISSA’s New Norm Working Group (WG) has prepared the first of a series of short articles that deal with the impact of the global pandemic on the Securities Services industry.  

Most in the industry already know the challenges that the Securities Services business faces. The pandemic, though, has brought these starkly into the spotlight. This is therefore a defining moment for the industry. If the key players come together – and act now – there is an opportunity to drive forward and effect real change. If they don’t, the same discussions will be taking place in another five years.

In this first article, the WG consider the challenges faced by the Securities Services industry in managing different working methods. They then offer insights and guidance as to how working methods could potentially be optimized in the future.
