The calendar continues to move towards the 2018 Finance Magnates London Summit this November 13-14 at Old Billingsgate. In what will be the event’s seventh installment, the 2018 Summit will feature thought leaders, executives, brokers, IBs, and more from across the industry.
The 2018 London Summit aims to bring together the most influential people from across the trading industry to network, learn, and discuss leading issues in a collective effort. Each summit includes a packed agenda featuring distinguished speakers, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops. Last year’s event saw over 2,000 attendees descend on London and 2018 looks to be even bigger.
Panel topics revealed
Finance Magnates is pleased to unveil some of the London Summit’s panel topics for 2018, which touch on the leading issues and topics facing the industry. As has been the case in years past, the marquee panel will feature a roundtable discussion from leading CEOs, who will delve into the current landscape surrounding the financial services industry as well as regulatory challenges.
In addition, panel discussions will also be focusing on marketing techniques, which have grown increasingly important in what has been a shifting regulatory environment. Indeed, heightened action from ESMA and other global regulators has reshaped the retail space, while also dictating new advertising and marketing constraints. How brokers and other venues continue to adjust will be a hot topic leading into the summit.

Another area of focus at the London Summit will be centered on blockchain technology. After last year’s steady adoption across numerous segments and industries, the advent of blockchain is now a mainstream force. However, the technology has made a large splash in the banking space, with a dedicated panel exploring the impact of blockchain in this segment. Big banks have spent billions retooling their infrastructure – in November attendees get an inside look into this transformation first hand.
Finally, much has been said about the recognition and steady adoption of the Global FX Code. Since its inception less than two years ago, many venues have voiced their endorsements, though how widespread is this sentiment? This topic will be particularly noteworthy as the FX industry continues to chart a course forward – this is one discussion you do not want to miss.
