Over 400 industry professionals attended this year’s Australia FIX Conference. The day started with Ms. Cathie Armour of ASIC, Ms. Emma Quinn of AB and Mr. Ben Radclyffe of Tower Research Capital discussing how the industry continues to evolve through effective leadership, both within their respective organizations and the industry as a whole.
Unsurprisingly, MiFID II was the main talking point throughout the day with its potential impacts to the Australian Markets being the focus of the discussions. It was unanimously agreed that it will have overarching impacts on research distribution and execution in the coming year even for those firms without direct exposure in Europe.
Another hot topic discussed was what “Best Execution” means going forward and how tools like Algo Wheel and other analytics being part of the solutions. On the technology front, a number of megatrends, including the application of Artificial Intelligence, Cloud technologies, Blockchain/DLT, FIX Orchestra etc., generated a lot of interest from the audience. In addition to the Buy-Side Closed Door Roundtable session at which the most pressing buy-side issues were discussed, this year’s event also featured a short standup comedy talk by Mr. Benjamin Quinlan. His lighthearted look at the industry generated lots of laughter and successfully made the day both an informative and a fun one.
