Catalyst Conversation: Technology in Financial Markets

The integration of technology into global financial markets has had far reaching implications on all market participants. From the largest institutions to the smallest mom n’ pop “odd-lot” retail investors, every market participant absorbs the hidden costs and benefits derived from market evolution. During this Catalyst Conversation, Stephen McMullin and Srujan Linga lead members through a critical analysis of the the most topical threads in global financial market structure.

The roundtable included discussions around:

  • High Frequency Trading and its Net Impact
  • Market Efficiency and BC&E (Broker/Clearing/Exchange) costs
  • HF Trading as a potential source for systematic risk?
  • Increased competition in the “Exchange Landscape” (i.e. the proliferation of new Alternative Trading Networks, Electronic Communication Networks’, and Exchanges)

The Global Catalyst Group also examined which markets, regions, and asset classes are next, if HF trading helps or hinders market participants, and if market structure held up under the stress of 2008’s market crash.
