European Equities: The Great Debate
John Howard, Automated Trader?s Publisher and CEO, had a busy June moderating a series of seminars on MiFID and related topics. The last in the series was held in London, where panelists participated in a discussion hosted by RTS Realtime Systems. With two exchanges, four MTFs and one exchange/MTF represented, the audience were treated to a ?full and frank? exchange of views!
Mark van Vugt, Global Head of Sales at RTS Realtime Systems opened the event by welcoming the panelists and audience. Mark remarked that the event might be seen as something of departure by RTS, which some still saw as primarily futures-focused. In fact, in response to the multi asset requirements of its clients, RTS had made a major investment in both product capabilities and connectivity to multiple equities venues that now rivalled its existing futures markets coverage.
