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.
