FIF Quarterly Event - Considerations of Multi-Asset Class Trading, Sponsored by Equinix

The Financial Information Forum (FIF) held its Quarterly Event on Monday, August 17th, 2015 at Yankee Stadium. Sponsored by Equinix, the theme of the event was Considerations of Multi-Asset Class Trading. Over 100 attendees joined us for the informative panel discussion moderated by Tom Jordan, President of Jordan & Jordan. Panelists Sean Downey, Executive Director of Global Clearing & Risk Policy, CME Group; Neal Goldstein, Managing Director, Global Head of Connectivity Services, JPMorgan Execution Services; Chris Isaacson, EVP, Global CIO, BATS Global Markets; and Max Palmer, Head of Algorithmic Trading & Analytics, FlexTrade Systems, shared their expertise in trading and processing multiple asset classes throughout the trade lifecycle. Following the discussion, attendees moved to the Equinix Yankee Suites to network and watch the New York Yankees earn a thrilling 8-7 victory in the bottom of the 10th inning over the Minnesota Twins. Former Yankees Cecil Fielder and Mickey Rivers were in the suites signing autographs for guests. This event was a great opportunity to bring together industry experts, network with colleagues and counterparts and enjoy an exciting game. We’d like to thank our sponsor, Equinix, the panelists and attendees for a very successful event. For information on past events and event sponsorship, please visit or email
