Telx®, a leading interconnection and data center provider in strategic North American markets, will be hosting a free financial markets webinar, “OTC Derivatives Reform: Impact on Data, Connectivity and Data Center Demand,” Wednesday, October 5, 2011 at noon EDT/ 9 a.m. PDT. The webcast is aimed at professionals in the swap trading industry, including dealers, traders, execution facilities, clearinghouses, data repository and warehouses executives, swap trading technology and architecture managers in need of reliable, real-world information to help them make the transition through the often confusing regulation reform sweeping the electronic swaps trading environment, while reducing both connection latency and liquidity risks. The interactive session will be hosted by Telx VP of Financial Markets Michael Cattell and will feature input from a panel of the industry’s leading players.
“Over-the-counter (OTC) derivative reform intends to reduce systemic risk and increase market transparency. Success, however, is highly dependent on the industry’s ability to produce, transmit, capture, store, and analyze petabytes of data,” said Kevin McPartland, principal and director of Fixed Income for TABB Group. “Now, as swaps trading moves to an electronic environment, latency concerns enter the picture. This forces trading firms to transform computer-intensive processes from batch to intraday, ultimately focusing on proximity to swap execution facility matching engines and related cash and derivatives markets.”
The panel includes Eiman Abdelmoneim, Principal, Client Relations at Sky Road, LLC; Christopher P. Augustin, CIO and Senior Founding Partner at Javelin Capital Markets, LLC; Henry Hunter, head of Product Management and Business Development with MarkitSERV; Jeffrey Maron, head of Client Technology at RatesMatch, GFI Group Inc.; Michael Riddle, Chief Operating Officer at Eris Exchange. These industry leaders will address topics that are impacting financial markets today, such as:
- the fundamental changes to financial technology infrastructure caused by new regulations and best practices for low-latency, low-risk strategies.
- What does “as soon as technologically possible” really mean?
- What are the biggest new sources of data in the financial markets industry – and is your data center ready to handle them?
