Social media platforms and techniques will have as profound an impact on institutions as they’ve had on our personal lives. Crowdsourced opinions as a precursor to sentiment analytics, community curated and maintained datasets, and peer-to-peer financing represent significant game-changers for capital markets participants, particularly traditional intermediaries. This panel will discuss the opportunities and threats in financial markets from direct interactions with crowd-based technologies.

Global markets are being re-architected on the backs of regulatory mandates, disruptive technologies, demands for harvesting more intelligence from bigger data, and the general need to achieve better performance at lower costs. Right-sizing and upgrading operational models, strategies and infrastructure will require more innovation than in any previous era in capital markets. In short, there is alpha to be uncovered in your business model.

4:30 pm – 5:15 pm - Death of Legacy
Is it possible to “future-proof” your technical infrastructure? Maybe not. But minimizing, phasing out or eliminating legacy infrastructure is critical for achieving improved accuracy, timeliness and adaptability of analytics – a critical requirement in today’s markets. Once trading firms and their intermediaries wake up to the value of archived data for current analytical needs, improved technical architecture concepts will rise in the pantheon of priorities. In the second of our panels focused on infrastructure, our experts will discuss strategies and technologies that will help reduce the drag of outdated tools and the intangible costs of technical fragmentation.
