Recap: The FIX - Japan Trading Community Speaks on What’s to Come for Global TradingBy James Wylie    October 13, 2016      Events

Over 600 delegates attended the FIX Trading conference in Japan last week, and all were eager to dive into a busy day of lively discussion! The event began with an opening keynote speech from the co-chair of the FIX Trading Community Japan Regional Committee, Junya Umeno’s, who rallied around the theme of “change” driven by an increase in algorithmic trading in Japanese markets. The scene was set for the day’s conversations.

On the Trading Platform Innovation panel, I joined a team of industry experts to discuss at length a range of pertinent topics to a standing-room only crowd. Keeping with the day’s theme, we covered the following areas:

  • Global changes in the regulatory space with a focus on what’s happening in the US / EUR and how to best prepare audience members for potential future changes in Japan. Specifically, we explored the implications of MiFID II, and the necessity for data acquisitions, clock syncing, UTC traceability, data storage, and Approved Reporting Mechanisms (ARMs).
  • Machine Time Analytics and why it is now a necessity for transparency, optimisation and compliance
  • Building vs buying solutions
  • New technologies including blockchain and the cloud
  • How technology associated with high frequency trading (HFT) is being adopted in other asset classes. e.g. Electronification of Foreign Exchange (FX) and Fixed Income markets

The Corvil booth was manned throughout the day by our Japanese team, who fielded questions and provided inquisitive guests with in depth demos of Corvil’s analytics. My thanks to:

  • Atsuhito Okubo, Country Manager, Tokyo
  • Takumi Miyazawa, Sales Engineer, Tokyo
  • Yoshihiro Yoshizawa, Professional Services Engineer, Tokyo

It was wonderful to see such an engaged and active community with a passion for the latest technology. And the enthusiasm for our panel discussion and for Corvil’s solutions was certainly gratifying. Until next time, Arigato!
