A Recap of #TFITS, Part 1: Post-Trade Market Revolution in Japan
Tokyo Financial Information & Technology Summit (TFITS) is the only event in Japan dedicated to IT, data, and operations executives from financial institutions.
TFITS is a one-day conference hosted by WatersTechnology and sponsored by 6 solution providers across APAC. This year’s Summit was held on July 5. The 2018 agenda packed with practical insights on:
- Data governance framework that would create business value and achieve cost efficiency.
- Data strategies to global regulations such as MiFID II and FRTB.
- Moving from a closed, in house approach to an open, innovative post-trade operating model.
- The role of Artificial Intelligence in data extraction and providing predictive insights on trading.
- Cutting-edge technology disruptors available to automate processes and add value to customers.
- How the introduction of API would revolutionize the risk, trading and investment functions.
I had the privilege of moderating a main stage strategic panel discussion titled “Embracing innovation in post-trade operation models.”
My panelists were:
- James Marsden, Managing Director, APAC Business Development & Strategy, BROADRIDGE JAPAN
- Ken Utsunomiya, Global Markets Division, Senior Executive MIZUHO SECURITIES CO LTD
- Allan Reyes, Managing Director-Head of the Technology Solutions, NIKKO ASSET MANAGEMENT
In this session, we discussed: what are key drivers that will transform the systems from a closed, in-house approach to an open, collaborative post-trade operating model; what the brokers, asset managers, and solution providers should do in order to encourage the fast-track innovation.
