It is therefore important for the financial sector to develop new financial instruments to keep satisfy the ever changing needs of the sector, gain new customers and to improve their bottom line.
The major markets within the financial industry lead the way with product innovation and design; driven by the need to satisfy the demands of different sectors of the population. The streams of products created these demand include Equity Trading, Money Market Funds, Fix Income Trading, Derivatives, and Repos.
