2nd Real Estate Private Equity Summit

Event : 2nd Real Estate Private Equity Summit

Date : Tue, 23/09/2014  

Country : UK

City : London

As the economy shows signs of recovery, domestic and overseas investors are moving back into European real estate private equity. But the shape of the market and nature of the risks involved are changing. There is markedly less demand for long-term capital flows, and many investors are scrutinizing their managers with intensive due diligence. Increased competition and impending regulatory developments are creating a shift in the debt markets, and with so much liquidity chasing limited supply, many managers are looking to peripheral markets to deliver returns. This summit will offer an in-depth understanding into trends that are affecting pricing, the role that leverage should play in your real estate investments, and in which regions and asset classes you will find the best risk-adjusted returns. »

High Frequency Trading: Challenge and Controversy

Event : High Frequency Trading: Challenge and Controversy

Date : Tue, 28/10/2014  

Country : UK

City : London

20% discount available to Global Fund Media Subscribers - Discount Code: HFT1GFM   HFT trading captures a range of activities, referring to all computer-managed trading systems which operate with very short holding periods, generate a very high number of quotes for each order that's transacted, and need to locate their servers close to public sources of data because they operate in milliseconds or microseconds.   HFT operators claim they enhance market liquidity. Ultra-fast traders, by this account, are helpful intermediaries, smoothing market movements by buying and selling when other investors are not interested. But watchdogs on both sides of the Atlantic worry that HFT creates a false impression of liquidity. The business, they say, takes a standard traders' practice, testing the market with expressions of interest that are not necessarily sincere, to a new level. To this debate, an enormous amount of sound and fury has been added in the past year, by claims that HFT is, in fact, thoroughly disruptive. Accusations have even been made that HFT is effectively insider dealing.   In March the European Parliament voted to regulate financial markets and curb high frequency trading. In May, ESMA launched its detailed consultation on the working rules for MiFID II which suggests the tough definition that traders who send an average of two orders per second to European markets may be considered high frequency and that being designated an HFT trader in one market would apply to all markets. Meanwhile in the US, SEC Chair Mary Jo White has recently promised that the regulator would be ‘addressing high frequency trading and promoting fairness’. »
