Here is a look back at yesterday’s event
In such an online, highly technologically advanced industry as ours, the ability for senior executives to socialize and meet with each other is paramount, and where better to do this than the global center of the entire electronic trading and financial technology industry – London.
On Wednesday, November 16, over 120 executives from across all sectors of the international FX industry attended the third in a global series of FinanceFeeds networking events, “The London Cup” at the fashionable Callooh Callay in London’s Shoreditch district.
The extremely comprehensive electronic trading industry in London is the mainstay of the entire world’s electronic markets, and has evolved tremendously over recent years. London is home to the entire ecosystem including technology vendors producing specialist end to end systems for FX brokerages, institutional liquidity providers and prime brokerages, platform developers, trading system integration and liquidity bridge technology providers, large, publicly listed retail brokerages with offices across the globe, specialist executive search consultancies that source London’s finest talent, electronic communication networks (ECN), signal providers, branding experts and of course the tier 1 banks that distribute liquidity at the very top level.
The third in our global series, this was the first FinanceFeeds London Cup networking event, which was enjoyed and represented by a cross section of senior industry executives from across all sectors, who were welcomed to the evening of top level networking by FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod, before the main stage was handed over to Kobi Gur, CEO of broker technology solutions provider Leverate, who elaborated on some very interesting developments that were unveiled this week.
In an FX industry first, executives from the FX industry were entertained by a charismatic and comprehensive keynote speech by Tom Constable and Owen Roberts of TwoBlokesTrading, two British Millennials who document their journey as retail traders by producing podcasts, and interviewing executives within the brokerages with which they trade, placing the vital customer in full view of the audience.
Following the keynote speeches, over three hours of networking took place, Callooh Callay providing suitably fitting surroundings for business to be conducted between the creme de la creme of the retail industry from across the world.
FinanceFeeds would like to sincerely thank all those who made this event such an enjoyable addition to the annual calendar for executives in the industry, including Leverate, which provided the sponsorship to cover the production and hosting for the event, and very importantlyall those who attended, enjoyed and struck up new relationships, as this is what it is all about.
