Day 2 - Wednesday 13th September 2017

11:40 AM Fireside Chat: Unbundling – What strategies are Portfolio Managers using to quantify and pay for FX research in a MiFID II world?

  • Working towards a global, multi-asset view - how do you manage cross subsidisation between asset classes, and in a global firm?

  • How can you quantify and categorise what constitutes ‘FX research’ - how are leading firms addressing this?

  • Should you do all or most research internally, is this where investment is going?

  • How do you decide how much you will pay for research – and how do you justify research costs to your investors?
