The Latin American Electronic Trading Summit

Event : The Latin American Electronic Trading Summit

Tue, 29/10/2013  
Conducted by : World Congress
Contact : Alexis Burgess

 Electronic trading activity in Latin America is expected to grow exponentially in the coming years, compelling the need to implement structure and opportunistic algorithms to cut execution costs and add alpha.  In particular, brokers will have to start developing region-specific algorithms to compete in the global markets and offer the best execution services in the region.  This change in the mindset of traders is driving the adoption of electronic trading tools by both buy-side and sell-side firms and signaling a dramatic growth in market levels and volumes as the exchanges continue to work to develop their internal and external trading infrastructure. 

The Latin American Electronic Trading Summit will explore the issues, challenges and opportunities presented by the emerging trends and developments in cross-exchange and cross-asset trading facing the buy-side and sell-side traders in Latin America.
