Evolving Trading Models

08:45 AM - 09:25 AM Head Trader Panel: Building the modern buy side fixed income desk- What elements are crucial to create a highly streamlined trading business in the current market?

David Bullen, Director, Bullen Management Christoph Hock, Head of Trading, Union Investments Carl James, Global Head of Fixed Income Trading, Pictet Asset Management , , Fabien Oreve, Global Head of Trading, Candriam Investors Group Pauli Mortensen, Global Head of Trading, Norges Bank Investment Management

Regulatory reform, shrinking dealer balance sheets, liquidity shortages- these are just some of the major challenges keeping buy side heads awake at night. As the fixed income evolution kicks into full gear, traditional methods of trading fixed income are changing, meaning internal reform is required to keep abreast of the ongoing changes happening outside your office. This pan-European head trader panel will provide insights on how you can build a strong desk to sail through these winds of change, sharing their expertise on:

  • Regulation- What processes are you putting in place now to practically prepare for the MiFID II deadline and what impact will this have on your trading?
  • Technology- What technology is crucial to improve your fixed income trading capabilities and how should you stack this around your current fixed income desk?
  • On the desk- How should you set up your internal structures to match an evolving external environment and maximise workflow efficiency?
  • What strategies can you exploit to overcome reduced dealer balance sheets and ensure you are tapping into the right liquidity hubs?

09:25 AM - 09:45 AM Industry Keynote: The Blueprint for success- How are new entrants disrupting fixed income markets to break the norm and offer differentiation to the buy side?

Paul Hamill, Managing Director, Global Head of FICC, Citadel Securities

With the dearth in liquidity across fixed income markets, and large powerhouses retrenching from FICC markets, this has opened the door to new non-bank market makers. Our afternoon keynote presentation will outline how these new entrants can offer a new, reliable service to the buy side and discuss how breaking the mould in fixed income can be a benefit to the buy side. Attend this keynote session to learn:

  • New entrants vs. traditional players - What makes the ideal trading business in 2016 and how can new models bring to the buy side?

  • Market structure through the lens - What has changed on the back of regulation and innovation, and what remains the same?

  • Notes from a new entrant - What has been learned from new entrants and how must they develop their models to operate successfully across markets?

  • How can new entrants work within a contrasting European landscape to offer more reliable liquidity globally?

  • Mapping the journey - How can disruption benefit fixed income markets and how can these new entrants evolve?

09:45 AM - 10:05 AM Sell Side Keynote: The perils of nostalgia – Importance of a forward looking approach for banks reinventing their business models to better meet buyside needs

Mark Goodman, Managing Director, Global Head of Electronic Trading, UBS Investment Bank
Since the financial crash in 2008, regulation has arguably hit the sell side hardest, with Basel III and capital constraints crippling balance sheets and discouraging risk taking, which in turn has led to liquidity shortages. These changes, alongside the boom in eTrading, have led to the sell side having to re-think their traditional business models in order to provide you, the buy side, with a reliable service in new markets. Our sell side keynote will outline exactly how the sell side are going through this change, where he will shed light on:

  • How is the sell side optimising their capital in a less liquid more regulated and lower return world to better support the buy side?
  • What types of e-trading technology is the sell side using to maximise efficiency of their dealing activity and pass on cost savings to the buy side?
  • In light of the move from a principal model of trading to an agency broking-centric trading model which players are leading the way in offering the buy side innovative solutions?

10:05 AM - 10:45 AM All Star Panel: Adapting to the new fixed income landscape- How can the full fixed income industry better work together to achieve a more effective market model in parallel with regulatory change?

David Bullen, Director, Bullen Management Brett Chappell, Head of Fixed Income Trading, Nordea Investment Management Juan Landazabal, Global Head of Fixed Income Trading, Deutsche AWM Mark Pumfrey, CEO for EMEA, Liquidnet Simon Maisey, Managing Director, Tradeweb Philip Simons, Global Head of Sales, Eurex

Lower dealer liquidity, increased regulation and new technology have been the chief incumbents relating to a radical shift in the fixed income market structure over recent years. With this evolution now in full swing, our market leading panel will debate exactly how the these changes have impacted the full value chain, and debate whether this type of market structure is sustainable, or if anything can be done to improve the current conditions. Attend this debate where you will learn:

  • Have the intended and unintended consequences of regulation had a positive or negative impact on market structure?

  • Can the sell side still serve the needs of the full buy side community, or is there becoming a clear gap between what they offer the tier 1 buy side versus the rest?

  • Is increased competition amongst trading platforms good for the industry or is further destabilising your access to liquidity?

  • Are the buy side the new liquidity kings in fixed income markets or does the liquidity still remain on the books of the sell side?

  • Is the infrastructure currently available for the buy side to effectively access new liquidity pools or are there still major gaps in the industry?
