The recently held 6th Annual Rosenblatt Global Exchange Leader Conference was an opportunity for portfolio managers, analysts, traders, asset managers, and proprietary trading firms like Chopper Trading to meet, network and discuss some of the most important trends in the industry. As to be expected with Rosenblatt initiatives, the conference was professional, focused and productive for me and our firm.
Rosenblatt asked me to contribute to the panel discussion on proprietary trading. While our discussion was mostly mired in industry talk about core cash-equities markets, and the potential impact of mergers, acquisitions, and IPOs coming down the pipeline, the panel also aimed to put the debate surrounding automated trading into perspective for investors and reporters.
In addition to speaking on the panel before the audience, I was able to hear updates about the next biggest trends set to impact our industry. For Chopper to maintain a competitive edge, it’s important that our employees and our leadership continually challenge the status quo and drive ongoing improvement and learning. This conference was just another way to seek out the information that helps Chopper to stay ahead of the game.
