In the FICC of It

In this week’s podcast episode, Colin Lambert and Galen Stops share their views on the takeover of BestX by State Street. What does it mean for BestX’ USP of independence? What drove the deal? Will it be a success?
They also touch upon the latest lawsuit in FX circles, served by former Fastmatch CEO and founder Dmitri Galinov against the firm and its owner, Euronext US, and ask whether this highlights yet another barrier to success for the swathe of fintech firms targeting the FICC sector?

In the FICC of It

In this week’s In the FICC of It podcast, Galen Stops breaks ranks to say he found one of Colin Lambert’s columns interesting, while the latter makes an appeal for expert knowledge on risk-free rates – if only so he doesn’t have to blag another podcast feature.
They also discuss the latest unfair dismissal outcome in the UK in which yet another FX dealer was found to have been wrongly sacked, as well as the potential implications for the fintech industry from a legal case in the US. In a busy podcast they also dispel some myths about AI – while at the same time making a big statement (is there any other kind?) on what will make AI trading successful; and they pick out their early selections for must-not-miss sessions from Forex Network Chicago in September.

In the FICC of It

In this week’s In the FICC of It podcast, Colin Lambert has another one of his “theories” – this time about why 360T bought GTX – and Galen Stops thinks he knows why CboeFX is doing so well.
They also rail against PR-speak when looking at this week’s news from the crypto and corporate world and ponder the value of corporate treasuries turning themselves into professional FX trading units.
They close out by discussing the possibilities of voice activated trading by creating “eFXa” (Trademark pending) and P&L’s managing editor looks to continue his stellar* run of World Cup predictions by tipping yet another surefire winner.

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.
