FIX Trading Community Collaborates with Trade Associations for the London EMEA Trading Conference in March 2019

Trading Systems

 FIX Trading Community, the non-profit, industry-driven standards body at the heart of global financial trading, today announced that the EMEA Trading Conference on 14th March 2019 will be held in association with a number of Trade Associations, including: The Association for Financial Markets in Europe, AFME, International Capital Market Association, ICMA, the European Debt Market Association, EDMA, and the German Investment Funds Association, BVI.

Regarded as the biggest one-day trading event in the region, the EMEA Trading Conference brings together key personnel in the industry to discuss issues that are impacting market participants. This new initiative, inviting the Trade Associations into the heart of the conference, will ensure the best content on the day for all the attending industry participants. The aim of the event is to encourage debate, share ideas and provide educational insight into the top initiatives underway within the FIX organisation, as well as explore key challenges and opportunities within the trading community. The Trade Associations’ contribution will only serve to strengthen the debate.

The popular structure will remain, with the morning plenary sessions which then break out into streams on equities, fixed income, FX and cross assets. This year, high on the list of topics to discuss are Market Data, the Equity Liquidity Landscape, Brexit, Cryptocurrencies and MiFID 2.5/3.

Over the years, important milestones have been reached at previous EMEA Trading Conferences – the formation of MiFID II working groups, discussion of best practices surrounding IPO automation, the greater adoption of FIX in the post-trade space, the ongoing evolution of fixed income trading, the need to extend FIX to meet cybersecurity requirements, and the big question of data and how to harness it for the benefit of the industry as a whole. There are always action points for members and this year’s event will be no different.

Matthew Coupe, Co-Chair EMEA Regional Committee & EMEA Regulatory Subcommittee, FIX Trading Community, Director, Barclays Investment Bank, noted, We’re delighted that the FIX Trading Community is being joined this year by so many important industry trade associations for the EMEA Trading Conference. They will play an integral part in both shaping the agenda for the day and providing valuable and stimulating panel contributionsThis will help provide an exciting packed day for industry participant discussion, as well as help engender practical outcomes.

Rebecca Healey, Co-Chair of the EMEA Regional Committee, FIX Trading Community and Head of EMEA Market Structure & Strategy, Liquidnet, commented, “We are delighted that so many trade associations have decided to join the FIX Trading Community in putting on one of the most significant one-day trading events in the region, and our flagship event. We know that this will only serve to enrich the experience for members attending and provide a valuable opportunity to learn and network with their peers at what looks to be the FIX Trading Community’s biggest conference yet.”
