Liquidnet and The TRADE will be hosting an event focused on new technologies for the buy-side on 16 May at the Andaz Hotel in London.

FinTech developments are dominating conversations in the industry at present with everything from blockchain to machine learning capturing the attention of the buy-side.

The joint event between Liquidnet and The TRADE will include a panel discussion with FinTech start-ups followed by a networking event which will include demos and the chance to interact with a number of FinTechs.

“In this new trading environment, the buy-side trader is going to need a new class of tools and technology to help fill the void created by the declining sell-side,” said Seth Merrin, founder and CEO of Liquidnet.

At the end of 2016, Liquidnet announced the launch of Liquidnet Labs, a virtual hub that showcases the latest technology developments for the buy-side.

Available to over 800 institutional investors around the world that comprise the Liquidnet membership, the hub provides a sneak peek into Liquidnet’s innovations and product pipeline.

“The launch of Liquidnet Labs allows us to strengthen our collaboration with the buy side and bring them in even earlier in the development process,” said Natasha Shamis, head of product at Liquidnet.

The event will begin at 5.00pm on 16 May.

This evening event is free to attend for The TRADE’s buy-side readers, and you can register to attend HERE.

Please note: This event is only available to the buy-side.
