Equities exchanges and low latency

Our next meeting of the Financial Services Club in London takes place on 26th February,  and will focus upon on how technology is changing the competitive
landscape of equities exchanges, with a particular emphasis on low latency.


This will be an in-depth panel discussion between:

  • Charlotte Crosswell, President, NASDAQ OMX;
  • Chris Pickles, Marketing Director, Financial
    Services, BT;
  • Peter Randall, Chief Executive, Chi-X;
  • Terry Quigley, Head of Financial Services, Colt Telecom; and
  • Yann L'Huillier, CIO, Turquoise.

Since the introduction of the Markets in Financial instruments Directive
(MiFID) we have seen a massive change in the equities landscape across
Europe. 

New exchanges have launched, based upon very high tech
capabilities, where connectivity and speed of processing is a key
differentiator.  Chi-X, Turquoise and NASDAQ OMX represent the most aggressive of these new exchanges,
powered by the networking capabilities of BT and Colt.

What does low
latency – high speed connectivity and processing – really mean to them and is
this a core differentiation or just part of straight through processing? 

How does technology change the pricing and competitiveness of the trading
arena? 

Here to answer these questions are the critical players in this
new world of trading.
