Main Day 2: Wednesday 26th April 2017

11:05 AM KEYNOTE DISCUSSION PANEL: How will the shift in research payments impact front office operations and execution strategies?

  • How are brokers pricing and valuing research and how can buy side best prepare for this?
  • How is this research being consumed, evaluated and ranked by the buy side? What are the top considerations for setting research budgets and how can you ensure this is compliant?
  • With research quality now being questioned, will there be a flurry of research-only houses? Will this impact current broker numbers on the buy side books and how will this impact execution choice?
  • What are the benefits of moving from CSAs to RPAs and why is this is necessary in light of MiFID II? What role does the trading desk have in this decision given a shift in responsibilities?
