There is plenty to talk about for this week’s podcast as Colin Lambert casts an eye over EBS’s plans to alter its matching engine infrastructure and shares some of the feedback he has received. He then has time to launch into a diatribe about the results of a survey last week indicating that spreads are the biggest challenge to market participants – noting that the FX market is a competitive space and therefore spreads are very likely to accurately reflect the risk environment at any given time.
Sanity is then restored as guest John Ashworth, CEO of Caplin Systems, joins Lambert to discuss how regional and specialist banks have responded to the pandemic conditions. The two discuss e-distribution and automation of the sales process, before Ashworth provides some thoughtful and interesting ideas around how an existing model in FX markets, white labelling, may be changing.
