Best Execution – Summer 2021
The year may be more than half over, but Covid-19, ESG and Brexit remain three of the dominant themes facing the financial services industry. One inescapable aspect of the pandemic regards the future of work, where an unwanted side-effect has been the spike in cybercrime; both of which we address in this issue. Meanwhile Brexit is still impacting market particiapants and we look at the long-term implications.
Getting closer to the trading desks, Dan Barnes takes a deep dive into FX trading and the pressure on margins and the need to increase efficiency. Our exclusive profile interview is with Ed Wicks, head of global trading at LGIM who discusses how his experienced and resilient team deftly navigated the pandemic and their strong standing for the future.
