Subscribe to our newsletter

The TradingTech Summit London, one of the most highly anticipated events in the financial technology industry, is back for the 12th time on 28th February at London’s Hilton Canary Wharf. The summit will bring together the leading innovators, investors, and thought leaders in trading technology to discuss the latest trends, challenges, and opportunities in this rapidly evolving sector. With a packed schedule of keynote speeches, panel discussions, and networking opportunities, the TradingTech Summit London promises to be an exciting and informative event for anyone with an interest in trading technology.

Kicking off the proceedings will be a keynote fireside chat between Alison Hollingshead, COO, Investment Management at Jupiter Asset Management and Cathy Gibson, Global Head of Trading at Ninety One, who will discuss the new world of trading technology, with a particular focus on digital transformation and technology innovation across asset classes.

The first panel session of the day will focus on modernising trading platforms, where C-Level executives from Kepler Cheuvreux, BT Pension Scheme Management, ION Group and Genesis Global will discuss how to leverage technology and interoperability to create a best-in-class trading platform. “By adopting advanced analytics solutions, the financial institutions of tomorrow can attain a competitive edge in a highly complex and data-intensive market environment,” Anvar Karimson, CTO at Kepler Cheuvreux, tells TradingTech Insight. “These solutions transform raw data into valuable insights and, through seamless interoperability, facilitate the timely delivery of these insights to the relevant stakeholders, thereby enabling more effective decision-making and improved outcomes in a rapidly evolving market ecosystem.”

The next panel, featuring thought leaders from Synechron Consulting, Credit Agricole CIB, Barclays and BSO, will look at how firms can balance performance and agility with risk, resilience and security across their trading systems infrastructure. Issues such as cloud concentration risk and cyber security risks will be explored in depth.

“The cyber threat landscape is constantly evolving, with malicious actors finding innovative attack methods and new hosting models providing fresh opportunities for accidental misconfiguration,” says Jim Oulton, Technical Director at Synechron Consulting. “This has resulted in an ever-increasing burden on large FSI’s who are now required to identify, track and address new vulnerabilities quicker than ever before across huge and diverse environments. It will be fascinating to discuss this with our panel of industry experts and to hear how they are addressing these challenges.”

Following a keynote from BSO, ‘Using technology to access new liquidity in the cloud’, the next panel, ‘Disruptive innovation in market data – what does the future look like?’ will be highly anticipated, as this is a topic that has generated much interest recently. Representatives from Fidelity International, Quilter, Fenics Market Data and BCC Group will look at new forms of market data delivery via the cloud, and how financial institutions can keep market data costs in check. Elliott Hann, Managing Director, Data & Analytics, Fenics Market Data gives TradingTech Insight a foretaste of the discussion: “Keeping market data costs down has always been a conundrum. How to balance the ever-growing need for third party data (much of which is required by regulation) vs keeping to budget is not a simple undertaking. It is imperative to have a laser-like focus on what is essential, and what isn’t, and to monitor the market to properly vet and select providers who have the correct data, of high quality, with high levels of support, and who understand that customer experience isn’t just about signing a contract and opening the tap.”

Following lunch and networking, the afternoon sessions will commence with another fireside chat between Virginia Saade of Citadel and Rachel Przybylski of Man Group, exploring developments in the global regulatory landscape and the impact on technology change. Next up will be a panel session entitled ‘Optimising trading analytics with an agile and flexible platform’, featuring speakers from Redburn, Aspect Capital, BMLL Technologies and OneMarketData.

The penultimate session will focus on the ‘talent, skills and productivity crisis’. Is there a skills gap hampering digital transformation? Is the industry doing enough to improve talent and diversity? What more should be done? Industry experts from FIX Trading Community, Man Group, OMNI Digital Services and State Street will aim to answer these questions.

The final panel session of the day will look at opportunities and innovations in Digital Assets, with panellists from Ignite G2M, Nomura, SDX and Goldman Sachs discussing the latest trends and developments in this space.

The Summit will conclude with the TradingTech Insight Europe Award Winners Ceremony Networking and Drinks Reception, where the leading companies in the trading technology sector will be presented with awards across a range of categories.

In conclusion, the TradingTech Summit London is an event not to be missed. mark your calendars for 28th February 2023, and join us for an exciting day of discussion, debate, and networking at the Hilton London Canary Wharf by registering at https://a-teaminsight.com/events/tradingtech-summit-london/.
