Singapore Conference 2012
The success of the FPL Singapore Conference over the last few years is a testament to the importance of industry participation through the FPL Singapore Working Group. Asia is a rapidly evolving market, and FPL’s presence is burgeoning. With continued industry input there is every reason to believe that the Singapore conference can flourish and provide a valuable forum for Asia’s leading traders.

The Singapore FPL event brought together a large number of high profile industry players in a friendly, relaxed environment that proved ideal for discussing the hot topics of the day. The presentations and key note speeches were relevant and interesting. All in, a first rate conference.

Electronic trading solutions such as algorithms and dark pools e.g. Liquidnet have greatly helped the equity buyside trader find liquidity, and gain better control over his/her executions. I hope that some of these benefits (and expectations) will be transferred to other asset classes as buy side desks evolve into multi- asset desks. The growth of multi asset desks will make switching between asset classes easier. Lower costs of implementation end to end will be an achievable goal, with certainly better control and less risk. In addition, our clients can take comfort from the fact that the same principles of best execution apply across all asset classes.

I found the day to be highly productive and informative. The agenda itself touched on a broad spectrum of topical issues, with insightful commentary from a top notch list of panellists. FPL made remarkably good use of the single day to bring industry participants together for interacting, informing, networking and idea sharing. Very much look forward to the next event.
