Best Execution – Summer 2019
Half the year is gone and, in many ways, it seems like Groundhog Day. In Europe, Brexit still has not happened and the other side of the Atlantic, US trade wars continue to rage while all market participants are nervously watching the cyber-war of words that has been launched by Donald Trump against Iran.
Geopolitical tensions are making everyone nervous, with both the buy- and sellside likely to be in for a bumpy ride going into the second half of 2019. However, as our profile interviewees in this issue – Dan Nicholls, head of trading at Hermes Investment Management and Stuart Williams, President of ICE Futures Europe – point out, teamwork, innovation and keeping close to your clients will help ease the ride.
