In the FICC of It

In this week’s In the FICC of It podcast, after last week’s confident prediction of a German World Cup win Profit & Loss’ managing editor Colin Lambert puts a hex on another team by predicting them as winners and editor Galen Stops volunteers to play fact checker on statements made by panellists at a conference.
They also discuss this week’s news, including the Global Foreign Exchange Committee meeting, BNY Mellon launching an options business, the latest from the crypto world and the latest evidence (unproven) of regulatory arbitrage involving Australia and the US.
On a more sombre note they also pay tribute to FX industry veteran Paul Chappell, who passed away this week, with a couple of lighter hearted stories involving him.
