- The Nordic view on pre-trade and post-trade exceptions
- The level and type of transparency needed to take into account the different characteristics of the asset classes
- Europe has many different economies, only one of which is Euro
- How has Italy become the role model and can its model be transferred?

The Future of block trading

Block trading is becoming a thing of the past and many questions are raised over its future in the electronic trading space. This panel seeks to debate current issues around block trading. Topics include:

- For which asset classes is block trading relevant today?
- How can pre-trade transparency be implemented to allow price formation for block trading?
- Is block trading at all relevant today for equities, when sophisticated execution algos and SOR can detect liquidity and achieve best execution?
- What is the future of brokers in the facilitation of block trading? From providers of risk capital to providers of technology?
- Block trading in a post-MiFID II environment. Death of dark-pools and proliferation of large in size pools?
- Pure buy-side to buy-side block crossing pools. Fantasy or a reality that will soon materialise?

Some of the issues that will be discussed are: 

  • MIFID II- The focus on compliance, best-execution, transparency, liquidity and market data fragmentation/costs
  • Electronisation of OTC assets and its consequences-  What can be learned from the Equity experience?
