On February 7th I spoke with Virtu Financial’s CEO Doug Cifu. The conversation touched on Virtu’s history, recent acquisitions, equity and fixed income market structure and the impact of high-speed trading on markets in general and market volatility more specifically. We recorded the session and loaded it as a podcast on SoundCloud. Perfect for your […]
I was asked to present something interesting to a room full of interns and recent college grads. It was a fun format and I really enjoyed giving this presentation. My ultimately goal: convince them that market structure is in fact fascinating, and being an analyst is a great way to make a living.
On October 3, 2016 I presented at Symphony’s Innovate conference at the Dream Hotel in New York City’s Chelsea neighborhood. The bottom line, relationships are still as important as ever, but the tools used to communicate are changing.

With the release of Greenwich’s annual North American equities study for which we spoke with nearly 550 portfolio managers and traders, the time has come to talk equities. To that end, on June 4 we’ll be hosting a webinar to discuss […]

But the problem is proving a much harder one to manage in Europe, with European banks continuing to deleverage and already complying with the principles of Basel III while US banks have their capital houses (relatively) in order. The impact of this dichotomy is broad, but one impact […]
Given all of the research we have going on here at Greenwich and all of the regulatory mess going on in the world, we thought it a good time to set up a webinar to review both. I’ll go through some of my recent research here at Greenwich – credit liquidity alternatives, trading technology spend, […]
Here at Greenwich we just wrapped up a study looking at how buy side trading desks are spending their technology dollars. On September 26 I presented the findings on a webinar (which I did from a conference room in a hotel in Boston just before moderating a panel on swap futures, in case you care), and […]
