The Finance Hive: The Quest for Liquidity

The Finance Hive: The Quest for Liquidity

16 March 2021

11:00 am - 12:00 pm

We will be inviting 40 industry leaders from buy side trading desks, keeping the community small enough so you can have relevant and useful discussions, and big enough to ensure a variety of opinions and experiences. Vendor participation is exclusively limited to solution providers that have been recommended by The Finance Hive’s members.

Topics are generated by in-depth research with our buy side members. You get to choose one of the following four conversations to join. The talking points below represent an outline for the discussions, but the questions addressed in each session stem from second-level research once an individual selects their table.

 

Topics of discussion include:

The Future of LIS Venues
IOI’s
Closing Auctions and Trade at Last

 

Detailed breakdown of Roundtable topics:

 

The future of LIS Venues:

  • How has acquisition activity across LIS venues affected competition and flows?
  • Are there conduct issues in LIS venues that are causing information leakage?
  • What size trades are buy side seeing in LIS venues?
  • Sharing experiences on rejection rates.
