The FinanceFeeds New York Cup – Thank you all for such a fantastic flagship event

Here is a look back at yesterday’s highly prestigious event where the professionals who lead this industry forward exclusively convened for the fourth FinanceFeeds Cup networking event in the annual series

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 epicenter the entire electronic trading and financial technology industry’s innovative and sophisticated establishment – New York.

On Thursday, December 1, over 30 executives from across all sectors of the United States FX and financial technology industry attended the fourth in a global series of FinanceFeeds networking events, “The New York Cup” at the upmarket and exclusive TriBeCa Grill in New York’s downtown Manhattan district of TriBeCa.

The extremely comprehensive electronic trading industry in North America, which is a domestic powerhouse that comprises the mainstay of the entire world’s electronic markets on an OTC and exchange listed basis has been for many years the pinnacle of leading edge business ethic and technological advancement that has led to the derivatives venues being world dominating, the market connectivity being absolutely leading edge, and the retail brokerage sector a commercial success with publicly listed comprehensive companies going from strength to strength.

North America’s major financial centers are home to the entire ecosystem including technology vendors producing specialist end to end systems for FX brokerages, institutional liquidity providers and prime brokerages, futures and listed derivatives exchanges, platform developers, trading system integration and liquidity bridge technology providers, large, publicly listed retail brokerages with offices across the globe, electronic communication networks (ECN), signal providers, branding experts and of course firms which have the most highly respected relationships with the tier 1 banks that distribute liquidity at the very top level.

The fourth in our global series, this was the first FinanceFeeds New York 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 Justin Hertzberg, CEO of one of America’s most prominent introducing brokers, who addressed those who lead our entire business and are shaping the electronic trading industry of tomorrow.
