As for upcoming topics at this year’s summit, the equity trading industry stands at a unique crossroads, having weathered many different issues recently. Expert panels will cover current buy-side priorities, such as:

  • Building an automated trading infrastructure that streamlines your end-to-end workflow and enables your traders to focus on high-value tasks and futureproofs your trading model
  • Embedding predictive analytics in your pre-trade process to drive automation and boost execution performance

  • Many institutions have enforced a work-from-home policy, while some others have separated their staff into working groups. Amid this disruption, building an agile and resilient trading desk that best responds to post-pandemic market changes has become more important than ever before
