Colin Lambert flies solo on this week’s podcast, thanks to the sheer weight of news. So the agenda ticks quite a few “Lambert Boxes”, starting with his thoughts over the changing role of the Global Foreign Exchange Committee after this week’s virtual meeting, especially that group mentioning publicly, for the first time in a formal environment, market conditions around the 4pm Fix.
This feeds nicely into another feature run by Profit & Loss last week, Lambert’s interview with Shirley Barrow, global head of benchmarks at Refinitiv, and the person who runs the organisation responsible for the 4pm Fix. The full feature can be read here, but listen in for Lambert’s takeaways from the conversation, including whether or not he thinks reform will happen.
There is also time to look at the latest P&L Talk Series with Morgan Stanley and the trends around the use of algos, Lambert believes this could be a watershed moment for algo execution services, as well as quick thoughts on moves by Euronext FX and Cboe FX to change how parts of their service operate. That includes, of course, a quick poke at last look!
