Product Description

The Prime Broker Value Streams comprise all the major value streams typical in a Prime Broker. The Prime Broker Value Streams are an essential and integral part of business architecture, and instead of starting from scratch, our pre-built deliverable jumpstarts the process, accelerating time to value.

(As the Prime Broker Value Streams is a digital deliverable, we do not accept returns or issue refunds. Please read the product description carefully before purchasing.)

Prime Broker Value Streams Deliverable:

  • A set of 26 value streams detailed the primary and supporting activities of the value chain. The value streams are decomposed into one step of high-level detail.
  • Bonus: A Guide to Value Streams.

Enterprise and Business Architects can use the Prime Broker value streams as a springboard and customize them to the needs of their enterprise.

(Note: While we reference business capabilities, journey maps, and process maps, please realize that this product pertains to only the value streams. We offer other products which span business capabilities. Furthermore, the value streams are in simple PowerPoint format and are editable.)

Prime Broker Value Streams:

In business architecture, value streams are defined as an organization’s activities to provide customers a valuable product or service. Rooted in lean management, this concept enables the visualization and optimization of the flow of information, materials, and services from initial request to final delivery. Value Streams provide a comprehensive view of the business, concentrating on how value is created across the organization while reducing waste.

Business Capabilities and Value Streams act as the Yin and Yang of business architecture. Business Capabilities represent what a business does – the inherent abilities an organization must have to achieve its mission. These are stable, strategic constructs that define the potential of the organization. Conversely, Value Streams illustrate how an organization deploys its capabilities to deliver value to its customers. Together, they offer a complete understanding of the business, marrying the static (capabilities) with the dynamic (value streams) and aligning strategic intent with operational execution.

In the context of a prime broker, Value Streams are crucial due to the complex, multi-faceted, and high-stakes nature of the services provided. They allow prime brokers to understand and visualize the flow of value from client onboarding to trade execution, clearing, settlement, and beyond. This comprehensive view facilitates the identification of inefficiencies, duplication, and delays, thus enhancing service quality, reducing operational risks, and improving client satisfaction.

Prime Broker firms can leverage Value Streams in several ways. They can help design and optimize core processes such as client onboarding, trade execution, clearing, settlement, and custody services. For instance, by mapping the ‘Trade Execution’ value stream, firms can pinpoint steps that add little or no value, such as redundant manual checks, and aim to automate or eliminate them. Additionally, Value Streams can provide valuable insights for strategic decision-making, such as understanding the impact of new regulations or technologies on existing value streams and designing new value streams for innovative services.

Lastly, Value Streams can be the foundation for creating detailed process maps and client journey maps. Beginning with a high-level value stream, business architects can drill down into more detailed process maps, outlining the specific steps, roles, systems, and data involved in each activity within the value stream. Similarly, client journey maps can be crafted by overlaying the client’s interactions and experiences onto the value stream. This approach ensures that process and client journey maps align with the broader flow of value, offering a consistent and integrated view of the business.

Our consultants and business architects with years of experience in business architecture, process consulting, and transformation strategy created the business architecture value streams. Use it as a starting point to customize them to your enterprise needs.

How to Use Value Streams Deliverables:

  • We strive to provide a generic and representative straw model Value Streams typical to an industry. However, as each firm differs, the specific steps in a value stream may vary – sometimes marginally and sometimes substantially. Business architects and process experts must use the deliverable as a springboard and customize it to each company’s unique needs.
  • After tailoring the value streams to reflect the internal reality of your business flows, business architects can leverage the value streams to cross-map with business capabilities, detailed process maps, customer journey maps, and other artifacts to glean insight and understand the footprint and relationships between these entities.
  • The value streams can be a basis for detailing the processes with additional information (actors, actions, data, systems, etc.) and crafting customer journey maps.
