Singapore FIX Conference 2017 Recap
Last week, FlexTrade attended the Singapore FIX Conference at the Pan Pacific Singapore. The conference brought together both traders and technologists to discuss key current topics including Best Execution, Algo Wheels and how MiFID II will impact buy-side firms outside of Europe.
Vice President of Business Development for Australia and New Zealand, Dan Enstedt, spoke on a panel entitled: ‘The Butterfly Effects of MiFID II on Research and Execution’.
The panel highlighted the importance of integration with current manual workflows where technology is possible including voice torrents, chat and messaging, especially in OTC markets. FlexTrade answers this need through its integrated 3rd party systems which help clients in achieving Best Execution.
Attendance at the event comes a few weeks following FlexTrade’s sponsorship of the Australia FIX Conference and with MiFID II implementation less than two months away, both events showcased its impact on a global scale. The panel discussion highlighted that although we can expect disruption in the market, the true impact of MiFID II is still unknown.
Notably however, in the long term, transparency under MiFID II will help end investors by making the market more efficient. New data and analytics will help traders in making better decisions which ultimately will provide results in better performance for their investments.
