  Addressing the Industry’s Challenges  

Entering its seventh year, the India FIX Conference 2015 will tackle both the business and technical issues of electronic trading in India through a series of presentations and lively panel discussions. This electronic trading conference is designed for both traders and technologists trading equities and derivatives.

The conference not only will cover the most pressing issues facing the institutional trading community in India, but it will also act as a catalyst for industry action and dialogue to help solving industry challenges including low trading volume, rapidly changing regulatory environment, technology and software upgrades, and cost of low latency trading, etc.

Adhering to the spirit of "Created by the industry, for the industry", 100% of the structure and content of FIX Trading Community events are shaped and delivered by senior representatives of buy-side, sell- side or technology firms active in the region. The conference is noted for its high quality speakers, relevant issues under debate and the significant networking opportunities it presents to the community trading India and offshore markets. Now in our sixth year, we will continue to not only provide a forum for industry participants to influence the continued evolution of electronic trading in India, but also a platform for learning about the latest trends and tools in the industry.

The conference will continue to be free of charge to FIX Trading Community members and industry participants and contain no sales pitches.
