KVH held the third and final seminar on "Next Generation Trading” on Monday, April 16 at Tosho Hall, Tokyo Stock Exchange, as part of a series of three joint seminars with Sungard, ABN-AMRO Clearing, and Tokyo Stock Exchange.
This seminar, themed "Required Trading Infrastructure to Stay Competitive in Today's Changing Environment," was well attended with over 80 participants from Tokyo’s financial community.
Daisuke Matsumoto of KVH presented on how trading IT infrastructure has been designed to address different trading and business strategies.
In the presentation, Matsumoto explained some of the changes that have occurred in the trading industry over time, including the increase in trading volume. Meanwhile, the motivation among traders to take chances quickly as they arise and to execute on as many orders as possible has not changed.
He also introduced various initiatives of TSE (Tokyo Stock Exchange) and the Korean market’s trading IT infrastructure as case studies of KVH, while explaining how to effectively design trading IT infrastructure and how it contributes to an overall business strategy. He emphasized that each choice should be coordinated according to the business’ strategy, with consideration of the five key elements of Network, Data Centre, Market Data, Algorithm Trading, and Execution Systems.
Closing remarks were made by Ryusuke Yokoyama, Executive Director, Head of Market Sales at Tokyo Stock Exchange. He introduced the new initiative “+YOU All of us as Japan’s Economy”, and stated that all of us are participating and actively contributing to the Japanese Economy.
