Equities 2015: A New Vision Forward

The tick-size pilot, regulatory scrutiny of high-frequency strategies, and demands for audit trails and greater transparency are reshaping the equity trading landscape. Even if nothing actually changes, the perception that the market is fair surely is tarnished, setting in motion a regulatory overhaul. But will new rules change the game for better or for worse? Will investors be helped or harmed? Hear from industry experts how new rules will impact market structure, liquidity, cost, transparency, enforcement, and how professionals trade.


Digital Impacts, Digital Opportunities: Open Platforms Lead Transformation

The digital era has been building momentum in other industries for the past decade. With the dual mega-drivers of unprecedented regulations and disruptive technologies, the digital transformation has finally arrived in the global capital markets, and it is set to impact every corner of the business. Achieving enhanced transparency and automation and securing new sources of competitive advantage – all core themes of the post-global financial crisis era – will be dependent on each firm’s ability to engage with digital solutions and tools. Our experts will detail these core methods and tools, with an emphasis on the role of open platforms to facilitate new levels of solution interoperability in achieving the unprecedented promise of the digital age. Join TABB Group and Thomson Reuters for this complimentary webinar.


Decision Making On the Leading Edge

Today’s challenge for the buy side is not a paucity of data; it is in fact the exact opposite – too much data. As a result, portfolio managers and traders spend too much time looking at data in many places, instead of focusing on what they should be doing: tracking their investments, analyzing trade ideas, and delivering alpha to their customers. How can a modern buy-side institution produce, aggregate and curate the right information to generate superior returns? In this TabbFORUM webinar, we will examine: The data integration challenges modern trading institutions face. The “transparency” drivers and their impacts on trading. The pros & cons of “best in breed” versus “organic” system solutions. How cutting-edge institutions engineer flexibility into their systems. What “leading-edge” decision making can do for your institution.


The Shrinking Cost of High Performance Computing: Open Standards, In-Memory Compute and Cloud

Five years into the post-GFC era in  capital markets,  there is a tangible convergence of tools that more easily enable higher performance compute at noticeably lower TCO.  In this TABB Group Webinar, we go beyond the macro landscape story and dive into two major categories of use cases – risk analytics and investment strategy development – that are on the verge of becoming the latest beneficiaries of the convergence of 3 technical pillars: open enterprise operating systems, in-memory database solutions, and cloud/infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings.


MarketTech 2015: FinTech Barbarians at the Gates

FinTech innovation is alive and well; however, innovative outsiders are at our gates. Unlike previous periods of FinTech disruption, Wall Street outsiders now are the engine of change. Tomorrow’s revolutionary technology is just as likely to come from Silicon Valley as it is from Silicon Alley. Whether it is cryptocurrencies, peer-to-peer lending, crowdsourcing, the cloud or any number of other transformational technologies, the Barbarians are here and FinTech change is upon us. What does that mean for the institutional capital markets? How are market participants responding? What technologies hold the most promise? How will the revolution in big data, storage, and analytics impact the industry, and how are these innovations changing the world of finance? TabbFORUM’s MarketTech 2015 will feature industry leaders and global visionaries as we look at how the markets are reacting to the surge of new ideas and technologies that are coming to the fore.   #TABBtech
