At this invitation-only event, senior equity traders from more than 100 of the world's leading asset-management firms will come together with heads of trading in the brokerage community, and senior management at leading exchanges and vendor firms to discuss the critical market dynamics reshaping today's trading landscape — from the dramatic reorganization of U.S. markets and the new era of global regulation, to the dynamic evolution of the buyside/sellside relationship. Sessions will alternate between large plenary sessions, and small workshops and roundtable discussions — to offer better interaction and more focused dialogue.

Our program is crafted with the help of a buyside advisory board:
