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.

“If your friend told you to download an app, and you saw it in the app store with good reviews, you might assume everything on it was legitimate. In before, you saw MetaTrader’s logo which looks like three men in suits jerking each other off under a table – an appropriate metaphor for cryptocurrency if I have ever seen one,” Oliver quipped.
Coinbase plans to support additional execution clients as America’s largest crypto platform aims to improve the Ethereum blockchain’s resilience and mitigate the risks associated with the network’s heavy reliance on a single client.
“Complex licensing practices by MDVs and trade data providers who deliver their data through MDVs increase costs for data users. Many Market Data Vendor (MDV) users have to hold licences both from the data generator (such as a trading venue) and from the MDV through which they access data. We have seen an increasing proliferation of licences for similar data types and different use cases. Complexity also drives additional costs for data users, such as operating a compliance team.”
