Day 1- Wednesday May 17th 2017

3:50 PM 360° Perspective: The concept of ‘All to All’ (A2A) trading- Why have A2A models failed in the past and what indications are there that they will succeed now?

  • The move to A2A- Is there currently enough data and pricing in the market for the A2A protocol to be successful?
  • A2A and the concept of anonymity- is this good or bad for fixed income markets?
  • How can you improve price discovery and pre-trade transparency on A2A models?
  • Defragmentation- How can the high number of A2A models be consolidated to reduce fragmentation in the market?
  • Debate- Will A2A overtake RFQ and become the dominant form of trading in fixed income?
