    Join Gary Paulin in conversation with Nick Pratt as they explore the trends that have driven the rapid adoption of outsourced trading, the role of COVID-19 in accelerating the impact of these trends and the signs that a ‘fourth wave’ of adoption is approaching.

    Outsourced trading – are you in the 15% getting left behind?

    •How firms – large and small – have come to see outsourced trading as a better way of doing things

    •Outsourced trading’s role as a proactive response to margin pressure, a way to de-risk and streamline operations and, critically, as a way to enhance governance and operational resiliency

    •The rising interest in data analytics to scrutinize manager skill and decision making in pursuit of greater efficiencies that might be a first hint of a new ‘fourth wave’ of outsourcing
