FinanceFeeds London Cup – Where 70 senior executives represented the very top of the FX industry. The full montage

From Bloomberg to the major interbank dealers, and from board level executives from the world’s prime of prime brokerages along with institutional technology leaders, the FinanceFeeds London Cup brought together the very leaders which preside over the most important components of the global business. Here is a full insight into the gathering of the elite

Yesterday evening, FinanceFeeds hosted the most recent in its series of FinanceFeeds Cup FX Industry Networking Events, this time in the all important Square Mile.

The London Cup took place in the exclusive, members-only EIGHT MOORGATE club in the heart of the epicenter of the world’s financial and technology center, at a very stylish venue, continuing the FinanceFeeds ethos of ensuring the opportunity to concentrate on networking with potential industry partners from the very top companies in the world, uninterrupted by sales pitches or advertorials.

Introduced by FinanceFeeds CEO Andrew Saks-McLeod, 70 senior executives convened for an evening of networking and discussion.

Sponsored by CMC Markets, a keynote speech was delivered by Head of Institutional, Richard Elston, one of the institutional FX industry’s highly experienced and urbane executives who provided a comprehensive insight into CMC Markets’ direction and increasing emphasis on its PrimeFX institutional product, building on its longstanding stature as a benchmark in the retail sector.

Mr Elston highlighted the publicly listed status of the company and that when choosing an institutional partner, brokers should consider various factors including the revenue and balance sheet of their provider, and to consider that for retail brokerages, if obtaining meaningful multi-asset flow is seen as a priority for growth, the single most important point to question is arguably just how much volume will be available across each of the assets.

Attended by some of the electronic trading industry’s global leaders, the event was represented by board and company director-level executives from esteemed firms that are synonymous with forging the direction of the entire FX and multi-asset business internationally.

London most certainly is the international linchpin for the interbank prime brokerage, prime of prime, non-bank institutional ECN, OTC derivatives technology and infrastructure and electronic brokerage business from beginning to end, hence the FinanceFeeds London Cup represented the very elite of this entire business and was once again the forum in which the very elite that drives our entire global business forward were able to conduct vital business with one another, which in turn is how this entire commercial enterprise evolves.

Join us on July 20 at The Establishment in Sydney, Australia, for the FinanceFeeds Sydney Cup FX Industry Networking Event, expanding on this series and ensuring that the elite continue to innovate and forge all important global commercial deals.

Here is a full montage of the FinanceFeeds London Cup at EIGHT MOORGATE members club.
