All That’s New at A-Team Intelligent Trading Summit

With just two weeks to go until A-Team Group’s Intelligent Trading Summit in London, we are getting pretty excited about the event’s line up of speakers, who will address everything from the challenges and opportunities of regulation, including MiFID II, to the intricacies of high performance trading; the vendors that will showcase their smart trading solutions; and the number of delegates already registered to attend the event. That said, places are limited so sign up soon and join us for what is shaping up to be a very interesting and informative day.

The morning sessions of the conference tackle the big issues faced by high performance trading teams. After lunch and a keynote from Fixnetix, separate streams will focus on the practicalities of low latency and smart trading operations.

On to the final sessions of the day, which are sponsored by Ignite G2M, and we will review all that’s new, or nearly new, and take a quick look into the future of innovative trading technologies. Dogan Calmaz, head of business development EMEA at Symphony, heads up this section of the conference with a keynote and update on the Symphony trader messaging start-up that is backed by some of the world’s biggest investment banks.

Moving on, Kevin Covington, principal at Change Alley, which offers advisory services to fintech start ups and investors, will introduce presentations from the founders and CEOs of a handful of fintechs including Cardabel, a provider of next generation fraud detection for capital markets; Everledger, a start-up offering an immutable ledger – or blockchain – for diamond identification and transaction verification; and Post-Quantum, a provider of new technologies designed to secure and encrypt data and transactions.

Closing the conference, Robert Barnes, CEO at Turquoise, will present a keynote that will most probably sum up much of the day’s discussion – Answering the Call for Electronic Trading (including Blocks) with Innovation and Open Access. See you there!
