FIF Quarterly Event Sponsored By UBS and Exegy

FIF Quarterly Event - Town Hall Discussion on Commoditization of Short Term Alpha - Kindly Sponsored by UBS & Exegy

The rate of change in market structure has slowed for US markets in recent years, and tools and infrastructure that were once the exclusive realm of the most elite prop trading firms, are increasingly becoming available to a broader range of market participants. Examples would include wireless transport of market data, FPGA's built into network cards, predictive quote feeds, and combinations of the above. Taken together these tools can be combined into ultra-rapid quote to trade strategies. These same tools, used on the agency trading side, can somewhat level the playing field, and the combination of the two produces a potential arms race. What are the costs to participants if they don't invest in this technology?

Please join us on Wednesday, June 27, 2018 at UBS (1285 6th Avenue, New York) for a town hall discussion on Commoditization of Short Term Alpha, followed by a networking reception. The town hall format will encourage audience participation in the discussion, while the moderator and representatives from UBS and Exegy will help drive the discussion in the room. Additional topics solicited from audience members for discussion is encouraged, such as: alternative data, cloud technology, market data infrastructure, artificial intelligence, and effects on regulation. We would like to thank UBS and Exegy for sponsoring this event.   Please register below.
