In this week’s In the FICC of It, your podcasters are taken to task by a listener over some points they may have missed when discussing the State Street/BestX deal last week and Galen Stops asks Colin Lambert the question (on behalf of a listener), ‘can you be too client focused?’
They also look at the impact of political events on FX markets and Lambert appeals to listeners of a ‘certain generation’ (i.e. as old as he is!) to come up with times when global politics was potentially such an influence on FX markets?
The evolving market structure of crypto markets also attracts their attention, and they ask the question; ‘Can innovation really thrive in banks today?’
