At this exclusive event, practitioners from the world of data and technology will share the stage with innovative buy-side firms to examine how the industry has adopted new tech and how industry relationships will evolve in future. They’ll discuss their views on: 


  • What technologies the most successful buy-side traders are embracing – AI? ML? Or just decent EMS?
  • Whether the role of today’s trader is fundamentally different given the advent of new technologies? Should a trader be a coder?
  • Does the cost & resource requirements of new tech & data make it prohibitive for smaller firms? OR is agility an asset in a high-tech world?
  • What will the relationship between buy-side, broker, bank and technology vendor look like in the future? Who is at most risk from disruption from incumbent players, new entrants or even the West Coast tech giants?
