November 23 (11:00) Centre Stage – Prime Time: Liquidity Between Retail and Institutional Trading

As the institutional FX space is gradually evolving, retail brokers need better execution for an ever-growing asset list. Join the industry leaders to navigate the choppy waters of liquidity pools.

Hormoz Faryar – Head of Institutional Sales – ADSS

Sam Horowitz – Head of FX Distribution and Liquidity Management – CMC Markets Connect

Michael Cairns – CEO, UK – Chief Risk Officer – Advanced Markets Group

James Dewdney-Herbert – Institutional FX Sales, Saxo Institutional – Saxo Bank

Andy Biggs – Group Head of Trading and Risk – Finalto

Alexei Jiltsov – Co-Founder – Tradefeedr

What are brokers’ major pain points and how can providers solve them? How do changes in pre-hedging and Global Code implementation affect retail brokers? How can brokers increase revenues by leveraging institutional TCA technology? Find out the answers to these questions and more by attending the panel this November.

You will be speaking on the Prime Time: Liquidity Between Retail and Institutional Trading panel, what do you think will be the highlight of the discussion and why should the audience attend it?

Hormoz Faryar (ADSS): Does technology make it easier or more difficult for various players in the liquidity space? There are always those who think tech is making fx liquidity a more equal playing field, and those who believe it’s easier the bigger you are. We will delve into these questions with regards to retail and institutional liquidity.

Sam Horowitz (CMC Markets Connect): For me, the highlight of all of these types of forum is when you get a genuine divergence of ideas and philosophies on the subject matter at hand. The creation and provision of true FX Liquidity, and where the worlds of retail and wholesale trading find a bridge is a rapidly evolving field, and there is definitely room for genuine debate on this panel (in the nicest possible way of course).

Michael Cairns (Advanced Markets Group): This is a discussion that touches upon one of the core foundations of our business, price liquidity, it’s something that every broker deals with on a daily basis. The focus on Transaction Cost Analysis (TCA) should be particularly enlightening and could test the argument that more is better when it comes to liquidity providers.

James Dewdney-Herbert (Saxo Bank): The panel is represented by leading brokers in our space, it will be interesting to see how the different panelists appreciate liquidity provision and management.

Andy Biggs (Finalto): One of the topics I'm most looking forward to discussing is the uptick in FX volatility, its effect on Retail and Institutional trading and the outlook going into next year.

What Are You Looking Forward to the Most at FMLS?

Hormoz Faryar (ADSS): Meeting the industry leaders and having deeper conversations. I find that FMLS is a time-efficient way to catch up with multiple people within 48 hours or so.

Sam Horowitz (CMC Markets Connect): Well obviously I am somewhat biased, but I think the CMC campfire session with our own Richard Elston, Artur Delijergijevs, Camilla Boldracchi and Kim Andersen will be hugely interesting and entertaining. Additionally, I am always keen to experience the breadth of what the rest of the market has to offer in terms of product and approach.

Michael Cairns (Advanced Markets Group): Obviously getting the Advanced Markets message out there and helping to promote the Company’s extensive business offering, that’s my main reason for attending, but I’m also looking forward to interacting with our peers in general and learning what’s new and innovative in the market. It’s a truly great opportunity to meet everyone in one central location.

James Dewdney-Herbert (Saxo Bank): FMLS is a big industry event, it draws many of our clients and counterparties to London which presents us unique opportunities to have important in person meetings with a number of key partners.

Andy Biggs (Finalto): Apart from the panel, I'm looking forward to connecting with old colleagues, old friends, and new opportunities.

Tell us a bit about what you do/your company/who you are looking to network with?

Hormoz Faryar (ADSS): I’m head of institutional sales at ADSS. I’ve been at both banks and brokers, since joining the FX industry back in 2000. ADSS was founded in 2010 and is a leading brokerage house in the Middle East based in Abu Dhabi.

Sam Horowitz (CMC Markets Connect): CMC Markets are essentially one of the first-ever fintechs, and for many years have occupied a pre-eminent place as one of the world’s leading retail trading providers.

CMC Markets Connect is our institutional offering and signifies our diversification into wholesale markets, leveraging both the mature technology stack and a high degree of data driven automation that has powered our existing growth, and also the diverse and uncorrelated pool of inventory that we typically carry on our trading books to bring something relatively unique and compelling to the institutional liquidity provision landscape.

My role as head of FX Distribution and Liquidity Management is to work with our institutional and wholesale clients to bridge the gap to our risk book runners (and automated processes) to ensure that our clients are provided with a trading product that actually matches with the risk management problems they are trying to solve.

Michael Cairns (Advanced Markets Group): I’m responsible for Advanced Markets’ FCA-licensed London entity as well as being tasked with managing the group’s risk and trading operations. Advanced Markets is a true Prime-of-Prime broker having established prime brokerage relationships with UBS and Standard Chartered Bank.

The Firm includes BGC Partners and Macquarie Bank as institutional shareholders and operates globally, offering price liquidity and order execution in FX, Metals, Energies, CFDs, Cryptos and Equities. Advanced Markets also offers multiple technology solutions to brokers, hedge funds and the like. I am looking forward to networking with like-minded firms and individuals with whom we can build sustainable, mutually beneficial business relationships in the years ahead.

James Dewdney-Herbert (Saxo Bank): Saxo Bank is the most sophisticated multi-asset proposition available to Institutional Clients. Cash equity, fixed income, foreign exchange, listed and OTC derivatives are available via 1 FIX API integration and 1 margin account. I am primarily responsible for the distribution of liquidity and market access via FIX API with a focus on FX Prime Brokerage.

Andy Biggs (Finalto): Finalto is a market leader in next-generation multi-channel trading software, systems, liquidity, and risk services which are offered in a B2B capacity to our global partner network. It’s a new name with years of experience behind it. I am responsible for Finalto Groups liquidity and risk services ensuring we can produce high quality products, with the best possible liquidity for whatever a client's requirement might be.
