I had the chance to moderate an informative session this week at the London Capital Club in central London. In the session we got to hear from industry thought leaders across both the buy-side and sell-side.
The headliner for the night was to take a deeper dive into the techniques being employed at different financial institutions which enable them to achieve a competitive advantage. It was an interesting discussion as our speakers dug into the nitty-gritty details. It really engaged both the other panelists and the audience.
There were a lot of things covered throughout the evening but some of the highlights included topics such as hedging and de-risking strategies, counterparty risk, collateral, as well as computational challenges.
Seeing how the event has generated so much interest throughout the evening it will be interesting to hear input on the same topic as we host the same themed event in Paris on April 1st.
