Working from home?

Filed under: Nuts and Bolts — holky @ 3:58 pm

Given the logistics problems the snow is bringing I thought I’d pose a question; how many of your traders are a) allowed to, and b) able to , work from home? Previously there have always been problems with the regulated roles doing their regulated work out of the [watchful eye of the] office, but I wondered if any firms were activly removing these hurdles in particular clever ways in order to support this. And does that give them an advantage on days like these?



  1. I suspect that the majority of traders are using an OMS that has compliance checking so the location of the trader SHOULD be irrelevant? Publishing an OMS via a citrix portal is simple so anyone should be able to work anywhere. Forward thinking companies that offer their staff the ability to work from any location will definitely have the upper hand.
