Taking Stock of the Global Code
Representatives of firms which have signed the Code will discuss their experience living and working with its requirements.They will also address outstanding challenges, appropriate frequencies for attestations, and how to best manage challenges around disclosure.
These morning sessions are broadly relevant, but may be most interesting to larger sell-side firms keen to benchmark themselves against their peers.
Addressing Barriers to Adoption
More than 200 firms have signed the FX Global Code, but buy-side adoption has been slower than anticipated. Our afternoon sessions explore barriers to adoptions, examine how these barriers can be overcome, and address the importance of buy-side buy-in.
Issues such as resolving concerns around the last look window and pre-hedging clients orders in accordance with the code will be discussed in roundtables and solo presentations.
