With the calendar marking November, the 2017 London Summit is now just two weeks away. Hosted by Finance Magnates, the event as of now has over 1,600 confirmed attendees.
As this is already a larger figure than last year’s attendance, and there are two more weeks of registration remaining, the London Summit 2017 is our largest, most ambitious event yet. Participants come from top-tier retail brokers, institutional FX investors, blockchain startups and the emerging cryptocurrency community.
Indeed, more attendees mean more networking and more business opportunities. The event includes a wide range of distinguished speakers, panel discussions, and hands-on workshops.

With just two weeks to go until the event, interest is buzzing due to the packed agenda and the recently opened polls for the awards. Each year, Finance Magnates recognizes the industry’s best-performing companies across a range of twelve different categories.
The awards reflect trends and shifts that the FX industry has undergone in the most recent year, and are decided based on votes from industry peers and attendees.
Also of notice is our signature Networking Blitz, a welcome party like no other in the City’s calendar.
The 2017 summit features some of the biggest IBs as well as top-tier retail brokers, asset managers, technology leaders, banks, hedge funds and regtech start-ups.

2017 has been a dramatic year for the industry. With the passage of the Global FX Code of Conduct back in May, the industry finally established a common set of guidelines for good practice in the FX market.
Discussing best execution practices and future clarity surrounding the code will be a panel moderated by Pete Eggleston, co-founder of BestX. The panel will include Adrian Bohler, Head of FX at BNP Paribas, Lee Sanders, Head of FX, FI Dealing at AXA IM, and Paul Chappel, founder and CIO of C-View and a member of the ACI FX Committee.
In particular, the discussion will include a roundtable assessment of adherence to the code from banks and the buy-side.
Blockchain technology has been the biggest driver of research and development, permeating the trading and banking space, among others. Equinix, Cobalt, and Pico will lay out the present and future of blockchain technology in FX and beyond.
What does it mean to be multi-asset in 2018? Constantly shifting regulations have necessitated clarity on the subject, given the wide range of instruments clients can choose from. Societe Generale, a leader in derivatives, will chair an upbeat market discussion ushering us to 2018.
