The International Commodities and Derivatives Association (ICDA) is hosting a Best Execution & Analytics event in Engelberg, near Zurich on 29 September.
Designed by and for market professionals from both the sell side and buy side as well as trading venues and industry vendors, the event will be held in association with itarle AG, a provider of multi asset algorithmic trading and analytics services for the sell-side.
Dr Paul Lynch (pictured), CEO of itarle, says: “Optimising execution costs, improving execution consistency and price performance has been top of the agenda for many firms in this industry for quite a while and an event focused on this topic is long overdue.
“We are looking forward to a day of debate and thought leadership with our peers, hosted by an independent association who are always looking for ways to expand the practical knowledge of their membership.”
ICDA chairman, Dan Day-Robinson, adds: "We are very pleased to be working with itarle on this event, we have pledged to offer our members and associates more opportunities to meet and acquire new skills and knowledge. With a great line up of industry-expert speakers, this event will enhance the practical understanding of what best execution means and how to achieve it.”
