Day 1 - Tuesday 12th September 2017

11:40 AM 360° Perspective: Liquidity in the spotlight - As the FX ecosystem becomes more complex, how can firms better assess FX trading opportunities via access to dealer, non-traditional dealer, and platform liquidity?

  • Will there be further consolidation among venues and providers ahead, and if so how will this impact buy side firms as they becoming increasingly focused on finding ways to lower trading fees?

  • How can the buy side use TCA and algos to maximise their access to liquidity and demonstrate best execution?

  • Aggregating a fragmented market - how can technology help you understand liquidity conditions to make more informed trading decisions?

  • Deep liquidity vs. recycled liquidity - how can firms ensure they are getting access to the right pools of liquidity and not just ‘recycled liquidity’?
