Why shouldn’t your financial desktop work as well as your smart phone?

Banks and hedge funds use a multitude of in-house and vendor applications, relying largely on closed ecosystems of desktop tools which enable core functions around trading, market data, order management, and analytics. Lack of interoperability between these applications results in inefficient, manual processes - frustrating end-users and increasing operational risk.

FDC3 brings standards to the financial desktop that support modern app workflows for sharing and discoverability of applications.
