Alexander Neil Head of Equity & Derivatives Trading EFG Bank
Having made the transition from high-touch sales trading to a low-touch sell-side trading desk and then finally to the buy-side, Alexander has experienced first-hand the evolution of execution methods at a time of rapidly changing trading regulation. He has a keen interest in the growing sophistication of the buy-side (particularly with regards to new ways of trading large blocks and how the dark space will adapt) and he is very excited to see how the industry as a whole can change further, as new rules and new technologies converge.
