He considers speculative trading to be a behavioral problem in that everyone is focusing on technology that delivers many facets, however his ethos is that we need to engage more people in the capital markets. “There are too few capital markets and the retail public is being dis-served.

As a result the capital markets are imperiled by the lack of true engagement. This problem should be the basis for the new technologies that power FX”
