Subscribe to our newsletter

One of the hottest topics in the industry right now is whether the ability to leverage Big Data in the trading environment, with the use of more sophisticated analytics, will deliver real competitive advantage.

Some say the jury is still out, but our panel of leading experts at next week’s A-Team Group Intelligent Trading Summit on March 4 in London, will offer some insight and fresh perspective as to how these tools are being deployed to generate real business benefit.

But how can Big Data technology and tools augment in-house expertise, and how can they be used most effectively?

The panel will discuss the building blocks required to define and develop and successful Big Data strategy and how platforms for handling Big Data need to be different from elsewhere in the bank. Be there to put your questions and get answers relevant to your current business challenges.
