    FX market volatility has been suppressed by central banks for almost a decade. But 2020 is like nothing we have ever seen before: a global pandemic, geopolitical tensions and unprecedented government stimulus bills. With all these unknowns, we are looking at a very uncertain and volatile end to the second decade of this century with potential shifts in world power, US dollar dominance challenged and the role of the world's institutions potentially changed forever.
  • 1pm - 2pm (UK): PANEL 2: Technology for Currency Hedge Funds
    With financial markets seeing trading costs drop dramatically over the years, many more hedge funds have entered the space. Additional entrants have brought with them more venues, more models and more technology innovation. Hedge funds greatly benefit from technology efficiencies by shortening the time-to-market, improving efficiency and margin management, decreasing trading costs and optimizing liquidity management. During this panel, experts from the field of technology will discuss technology solutions such as sophisticated front-office solutions that help achieve market-beating, risk-adjusted returns, as well as automated and integrated middle, and back-office infrastructures that deliver the operating and compliance efficiencies hedge funds need to control costs and maintain their profitability in an era of tightening fees.
