The story of Cost of Investing
Asset managers and bank trading desks share a common problem, with different causes – it’s getting harder to make money. That becomes a problem for technology and infrastructure providers as well, which have to support their customers’ efficiency drive or risk being sidelined.
The good news for all these firms is that they have options. New technology and new ideas are revealing a galaxy of ways to invest and trade more efficiently. Some of these efficiency plays can be implemented by a firm acting alone, but many more – especially the more radical, visionary solutions – require buy-side, sell-side, tech and infrastructure to work in concert. This new industry event is a unique chance to do exactly that.
The single premise behind it all: for years to come, alpha will be found as much in systems and processes as in the investing and trading strategies they enable.
