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?

Day 2- Thursday 18th May 2017

2:30 PM All Star Panel: Adapting to the new norm- How can you navigate today’s fragmented fixed income world to successfully source liquidity on a regular basis?

  • What are the main causes of poor liquidity across fixed income markets and how can they be addressed?
  • Liquidity conditions- How has liquidity changed, what works now and how has the progression been on providing new solutions?
  • Adapting to the new norm- Where does liquidity lie now and what tools and strategies do you need to source it?
  • Will liquidity ever return to the conditions of pre-2008 or is the current environment here to stay?
  • Debate- Would a cultural shift on the buy side of sharing data significantly improve transparency and liquidity conditions in fixed income, and if so is this possible?
