The Importance of Decision Making

This session will feature a one-on-one discussion with Richard Arnold, Manchester United Group Managing Director. Moderated by Bloomberg LP’s David Hellier, the session will delve into what sort of decisions are instrumental to success in the industry with an emphasis on forward thinking.


Panel – Leading the Charge

Leadership is consumed with how to build great teams, while adopting the right technology to ensure success for the long-term. This discussion will focus on challenges and opportunities in the forex market, and specifically how technology is innovating the way we trade, while reducing costs and opening the doors to progress and new risks at the same time. What can be gained by the new possibilities, and what risks should leadership be most concerned about.

Panelists include Swissquote’s Marc Burki, Gold-i’s Tom Higgins, FXCM’s Brendan Callan, and CFH Clearing’s Christian Frahm. The panel will be moderated by Bloomberg LP’s Justina Lee.


Panel – Forex Forward 

What are the best strategies for brokers and banks to be able to scale their online trading with further EU regulated forex trading policies in place, and Brexit on the horizon? This panel will assess the limitations of moving forex onto electronic platforms, employing technologies like algorithmic trading, and how best to build an improved risk management strategy.

Panelists will include Swissquote’s Muamar Behnam and FXSpotStream’s Alan F. Schwarz. Charlotte Ryan from Bloomberg News will be moderating the panel.

Following the two discussions, closing remarks will be given by hosts from Bloomberg. Networking and drinks will take place directly after the event at the Networking Blitz Opening Party for Finance Magnates’ London Summit at Old Billingsgate.
