Upcoming Webinar: Re-architecting the trading platform for interoperability, resilience and profitability

15 November 2023

Date: 15 November 2023
Time: 10:00am ET / 3:00pm London / 4:00pm CET
Duration: 50 minutes

Trading platforms have come a long way since the days of exchanging paper certificates and shouting across trading floors, pits and desks in the early 2000s, but there is progress still to be made as firms strive to reduce risk, increase profitability, and make their mark in digital assets trading.

This webinar will review the pros and cons of today’s typical electronic trading platforms and provide practical guidance on how they could be re-architected to provide interoperability, resilience, and the ultimate prize of increased profitability. It will also discuss the optimal technology stack, whether to build or buy, and the benefits of successful re-architecture.

Register for the webinar to find out about:

  • The pros and cons of typical electronic trading platforms
  • Why now is the time to invest in re-architecting platforms
  • Whether to build, buy or take a hybrid approach
  • How to achieve interoperability, resilience and profitability
  • Benefits of getting it right, penalties of getting it wrong
