A new world of electronic trading
Parsys 2

Institutional electronic trading is embracing the future, thanks to the evolutionary power of data and technology. While technology is offering exciting possibilities for collaboration and enhanced performance, this change is raising questions about just how far innovation can and should go in a sector that historically runs on human expertise.


Barclays and industry experts recently came together at Barclays’ Rise Client Connect event, Equities Execution and the Fourth Industrial Revolution to discuss and explore opportunities created by data and technology across electronic trading, and how these can be harnessed to benefit both the buy side and sell side.

The future of trading

Nej D’Jelal, Co-Head of Equities Electronic Trading, EMEA at Barclays and Alastair Clarke, Senior European Equity Trader at Capital Group, explore what is in store for electronic trading in the short and long term, and how the trading ecosystem of tomorrow will be built on a combination of augmentation, integration and flexibility across platforms and services.

The role of data and technology

Matthew Cousens, Head of EMEA Execution Sales at Barclays and Allison Hollingshead, Chief of Staff, Trading Platform & Core Technology at Man Group, discuss how the market and skillset for electronic trading are changing, and how the collaborative power of traders, clients, and technology can help enhance overall performance.
