A radical new event in 2016: What’s so different?

  • 80% new speakers: amongst the 50 buy-side leaders providing you with new insights and new solutions to your daily challenges
  • Dedicated in-depth tracks for Heads of Trading and Heads of Trading Technology: so whether it’s trading strategy or trading technology you’re interested in, we’ve got you covered for the full 2 days
  • A stunning new venue – the St Regis Singapore: far more intimate and inspiring surroundings in which to network with and learn from your peers
  • New learning formats that give you the detail you crave: forget about sitting in front of presentations and panels all day – you’ll be regularly immersed in intense, small working groups to uncover practical solutions to your day-to-day pain points
  • New “winner takes all” head-to-head debates on HFT and ETFs: does the benefit of HFT outweigh the harm it creates for large investors? And active vs. passive ETF investing – which will yield the best profits in current market conditions?
  • Spotlight on China: how can China overcome internal factors to unleash the power of stocks and bonds, what has happened in China post-crash and how can your trading desk benefit from the new Hong Kong–Shanghai–Shenzhen Stock Connect?
  • Understand MIFID II’s impact on Asia: Discuss the latest requirements and timeframes you should be working towards
  • Real-time hacking of a trading architecture: join a “live” cyber intrusion of a fictitious financial institution to understand how secure your trading architecture really is
  • The fintech threat - part bubble, part trouble: sit back and witness industry-leading innovators pitting themselves against each other in a battle to determine if the banks, and their investors, really have anything to worry about
  • It’s all about the blockchain: how will it change the way you trade?
