ITG’s Selway is Keynote at Traders Magazine ETHF
Traders Magazine is proud to announce it is holding its Second Equities Market Structure Town Hall Forum event on Tuesday, November 7 in New York City. This must attend event is being held at the Upper Story by Charlie Palmer located at 979 3rd Ave on the 14th floor from 2:30pm until 6pm.
The Traders Magazine Equity Market Structure Town Hall Forum is a unique, content- driven event beginning with our Advisory Committee setting the landscape stage, followed by our keynote speaker and then comes several breakout roundtables. Our keynote fireside chat speaker this year will be Jamie Selway, Head of Execution Services at ITG.
There will be ten roundtable events this year – each will be its own ‘conference within a conference’, populated by senior traders, exchange and technology executives there to debate the most pressing issues in the institutional equity markets.
THE CHANGING FACE OF THE SELL SIDE TRADER
The high- and low-touch roles that the traditional sales trader performed have now melded into a single execution specialist. Is this the best way to trade?
THE ETF EXPLOSION
With stock prices hovering near multi-year highs, see how ETFs have filled the void as a cheaper but equally liquid addition to the institutional managers portfolio.
AUTOMATED TRADING – IS MACHINE LEARNING THE FUTURE?
As the market trades in nanoseconds over microwaves and fiber, is it time to remove some of the human element in order to speed trading and lower costs?
IS THE MAKER TAKER PRICING MODEL FINISHED?
Is it time to scrap the old way of encouraging firms to post liquidity on trading venues and employ some new pricing incentive?
HOW MIFID II WILL CHANGE HOW BUY SIDE PAYS FOR RESEARCH Just how will the unbundling of research payments from execution costs determine how much and what research the institutional trader will purchase from the sell-side.
THE TICK PILOT – ONE YEAR LATER
Armed with reams of data collected during the pilot phase, how has the change in tick size helped or hurt trading.
IS THERE MORE TO TRADING THAN JUST BEST EX?
Does the buy-side measure its performance simply by the trades it executes? Or should traders also look at the trades it didn’t make?
TECHNOLOGY – AN ARMS RACE NO ONE CAN WIN?
Has the rising cost of technology, amid stagnant commission rates and lower profits, made competing with other firms’ electronic offerings a recipe for disaster?
WHY ARE EXCHANGES ROLLING OUT NEW BUYSIDE-FOCUSED ORDER TYPES?
So, how does an exchange attract the buy-side order away from alternate venues such as dark pools? The answer is simple – create new and improved order types that will meet the buy-sides’ dual mandate for liquidity and blocks.
CYBERSECURITY AND VENDOR MANAGEMENT
Thought leaders gather to discuss cyber trends and recommended processes establishing the highest security standards. Topics will include how it should be approached and recommendations on how to assess. Also, how do you evaluate that your firm’s vendors are taking the necessary security precautions? How do you appraise cyber providers?
Following the roundtables, the afternoon will culminate with cocktails with some of the best and brightest equities market professionals.
