Best Execution – Autumn 2019
Back in the Summer issue I alluded to the film Groundhog Day in regard to Brexit, in which the actor Bill Murray is seemingly trapped forever to re-live his worst ever day over and over again. As far as the UK is concerned that interminable loop continues. The players may have changed but the same arguments are being made over and over again.
In general, and ironically, there are two but perhaps inevitable opposing forces – those that want to drag the country back to a bygone era and others that are dancing to a digital tune. Progress, of course cannot, or should not, be stopped and in this issue we look the Buyside’s view of RFQ platforms, the challenges of SFTR, the issue of liquidity in the crypto-asset space, market data and drill down into the world of fixed income trading.
We also have two profile interviews; Gianluca Minieri at Amundi and Charlotte Crosswell at Innovate Finance.
