Beware of the Three Wise Monkeys!

Ana Herrero-WallaceThere is an old proverb about three wise monkeys who see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil. We’re looking to change that story.

I have always had a fascination with markets. A major focus for me is to understand how technology interacts with legislation. This acquired taste really flourished after I started working at Fidessa.

The Regulation Team, of which I’m a member, comprises many pairs of experienced eyes that will focus on the interpretation of legislation and news articles. We will share with you what we learn at conferences and from the market place at large. This website is where we will speak up.

Some of you might be thinking, why should I care about this stuff?

Well, we’ll be writing about areas that will impact your work, directly or indirectly. Learning about MiFID should enable you to better connect with, and understand, the changes that will occur in clients’ businesses. Let’s not forget that the changes in market structure that took place following the introduction of MiFID brought Fidessa’s clients some very valuable opportunities as traders invested in technology to capitalise on these changes – EPOCH, MTF gateways and SOR, for example. Of course, the new regulation will provide us with similar challenges as we will have to implement the necessary changes to our software to make it MiFID-compliant and resilient.

We’ll meet them with the same level hard work and great enthusiasm. Hopefully, unlike the three wise monkeys – this forum will allow all of us to see, hear and speak about interesting things,  and meet these challenges.

How much will MiFID II shake the current market structure? (Beware of the Three Wise Monkeys!)
