Since the 1980s, the electronification of financial markets trading resulted in innovations in computer hardware and software design that frequently tested the limits of what the technology that is utilised by markets participants – specifically, asset managers, hedge funds, institutional investors and investment banks – in their every-day operations can achieve. In 2018, this so-called binary, classical computing technology is arguably on the cusp of a revolution in terms of its long-term development cycle that could one day result in those systems being replaced by new, non-binary quantum computers, which could dramatically expand the data processing and business model capabilities of any type of company. In this article, GreySpark Partners Analyst Consultant Rihards Buliga explores the current narrative around quantum computing technology in the financial markets arena, and he examines the potential for its uptake in the near-future.
