12:20 PM Oxford Style Debate: True or false - Creating a consolidated tape in FX will become a reality in the next 5 years

  • Audience vote at the start of the debate to see if the audience votes for or against a consolidated tape becoming a reality in the next 5 years

  • Outlining the pros and cons - What are the benefits and drawbacks of setting up a consolidated tape in FX? Do FX markets have the need for a consolidated tape to improve transparency and create fairer market conditions?

  • Is there sufficient technology in FX to now push a consolidated tape or do FX markets still have to innovate further before this becomes a reality?

  • Has the release of the code of conduct and ongoing regulation helped to push FX markets towards a consolidated tape?

  • Audience vote at the end of the debate to see if the panelists have been able to influence the vote in favor of their argument

15:10 PM 360° Perspective: Geo-political investment trends in the new world order - What major events in 2017 will have the biggest impact on FX markets, and how can you set up a winning strategy to capitalize on these?

  • What is the tail risk associated with the UK voting itself out of the EU – is there a clear vulnerability for the sterling? Can London remain the global FX trading hub?

  • What are the key fundamentals and drivers of the US dollar in 2017 and 2018? Will political change in the United States inspire drastic shifts to investment regimes and conditions or will it be mitigated by strong economic policy continuity?

  • What do the major elections in Europe mean for the Eurozone - Is there a risk of further break-up? How will the effect of additional member countries leaving the EU put stress on the Euro and ultimately impact interest rates and global capital markets?

  • What is the outlook for the pound and the Euro in 2017 and how can you best manage the risks associated with the two currencies?

  • What investment opportunities can be found amidst the uncertainty?
