“Our collaboration with Dataminr is aligned with FlexTrade’s ongoing mission to integrate with market leaders to enhance the overall user experience for our clients globally, give them the edge over traditional market data and ensure they achieve true Best Execution,” said Andy Mahoney – Head of Sales at FlexTrade.

Many topical issues were covered during the conference in panel debates including Brexit, where of those surveyed, 76% believed that Brexit will not lead to London losing its position as the global FX hub.

MiFID II was still a leading topic at the conference. One panel discussed how traders are approaching regulatory challenges to achieve best execution and a fully compliant trading desk.

Patrons visited the FlexTrade to learn more about their MTF/OTF status under MiFID II which is discussed in their latest Q&A, ‘How will MiFID II impact FX execution for the buy-side?’, which is also found on their Best Execution Platform.
