9:45 AM Keynote Fireside Chat – How can you source unique liquidity at the best price when low market impact in key to drive enhanced performance?

AQR Capital is the 2nd largest hedge fund globally. Isaac is responsible for managing the firm’s trading operations across all asset classes and regions. With extensive experience in automating trading, he will discuss how he is evolving his trading strategy to better source unique liquidity with a special focus on high touch.

  • Given the transfer of risk, how is liquidity now being sourced and how is this different?
  • What type of liquidity is being requested and where did it come from ie. risk, natural etc
  • Which brokers can provide this specific liquidity?
  • Where can the trader add value now given the rise of more systematic trading?
  • What are the newer controls in place to better control where they trade and rebalance in their execution strategies?
  • How can market liquidity be factored into investment decisions up the investment chain? Once alpha is captured, how can you embed execution into this model when market liquidity can’t be controlled?
