With new dates now confirmed for TradeTech Europe 2020, The TRADE is delighted to present this preview version of the TRADETech Daily newspaper ahead of the event in October. Keeping you up-to-date with all the going ons in the equities trading world, our cover story [continued on page 4] is a deep dive into how buy-side traders, and indeed the industry, have coped with a new remote working environment. While it may be miserable for some, others have seemingly adapted quite quickly to the challenges they faced early on.
As a start to the year-long celebration of TradeTech’s 20th anniversary, we look at how the role of the buy- and sell-side trader has evolved since 2010 [page 18]. Elsewhere, TradeTech’s very own Susie Benaim discusses what delegates can expect to hear from the agenda [page 12] with the COVID-19 pandemic highly anticipated to dominate some discussions.
The TRADETech Daily will be back in October with its first on-the-ground edition, and you can expect more from the buy-side, as well as special editorial contributions from familiar faces and industry veterans. I’m certainly looking forward to the event – in my new role as editor of The TRADE – keep an eye out for our recently expanded editorial team too. We hope you enjoy this preview edition, and we look forward to seeing you all again in October in Paris.
Editor, The TRADE
