TradeTech France 2012

TradeTech France 201213 February 2012Hotel Pullman, Paris, Tour Eiffelhttp://www.ftseglobalmarkets.com/

TradeTech France is a boutique conference exclusively for the electronic trading community of the Francophone nations bringing speakers from across Europe to Paris. At a time when global regulatory change is set to revolutionise market structure in Europe this event, held in French and English languages, offers the buy side a unique opportunity to come together and assess how these sweeping changes, such as MiFID II, will impact their industry and trading system choices.

Speakers will be drawn from across Europe, including heads of trading from leading asset managers, hedge funds and high frequency trading shops (HFT), as well as senior European regulators. Positioned at the start of the year to give a complete regulatory review at a time when European institutions will have just 12 months to fully comply with the directives of MIFID II, EMIR and Dodd-Frank, it is the chance for the French buy side to get into direct conversation with regulators and colleagues and peers from across Europe to interpret the letter and the spirit of the new directives.
