Day 1 - Tuesday 12th September 2017

09:45 AM Sell Side Keynote Panel: Are sell side firms embracing the spirit of the new regulation and transparency, and how are they adapting their business models in a period of regulatory challenges and liquidity constraints?

  • Execution models pros and cons: Principal, hybrid or agency model - is there space for all three models in the market? Is the trend towards agency execution providing the most transparent medium possible for clients to cover risk?

  • How are the sell side reacting to the buy side’s needs in an evolving market structure, with new players entering the market offering liquidity? What kind of technology, tools and service are on offer to differentiate themselves?

  • How have the new margin rules for NDFs impacted liquidity from a sell side perspective?

  • How can the sell side use algorithms to offer a more cost effective service to the buy side?

  • How are sell side firms addressing buy side concerns about the increasing “juniorisation” of sell-side sales traders?
