Modern Markets require Modern Technologies

Speaker: George Papa
Location: Annenberg 105

Join SpiderRock Founder and Caltech Alum George Papa as we examine modern trading and the technologies that underpin our evolving electronic markets. Today, in the United States alone, there are 11 Equities exchanges and more than 40 "alternative" trading venues.  As the search for best price and/or execution has decentralized, electronic messaging volumes have grown exponentially. Trading firms, brokerages and exchange themselves are developing high performance platforms to keep pace with these large and growing data sets.   In an informal presentation and chat, we will discuss markets themselves and some of the specialized technologies created for our modern financial ecosystem.
