The podcast has a nice positive vibe to it this week as Colin Lambert is joined by Ayesa Latif, head of EMEA e-commerce FX sales at Citi to discuss the eighth annual “e-for-education” campaign by the bank, which kicks off this week. Latif explains how the campaign works, what channels are likely to generate the funds, as well as the not for profit partners Citi’s FX team works with – she also highlights some great examples of material help the programme, which raised over $8 million last year alone, has provided.

Lambert also appears to be in a good mood when discussing the launch by XTX Markets of its first execution algo for clients, this even extends into the broader impact of the growing use of algos generally, although clouds do appear on the podcast horizon as this segment veers into last look! The changing mood continues as Lambert expresses his bafflement at the workings, more specifically the thinking, within the US Second Circuit Court of Appeals as Mark Johnson has a bid for a re-trial knocked back just days before the same court accepts a separate bid using exactly the same legal argument!
