Presented by

Nik Pratt, Editor, Funds Europe and Gary Paulin, Global Head of Integrated Trading Solutions, Northern Trust Capital Markets

About this talk

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? What some initially treated as simply a cost-efficiency exercise has rapidly evolved and the outsourced trading model now resembles an optimal state offering diverse benefits in terms of efficiency, operational resiliency, governance and managing technological complexity. In a recent survey, 85% of 300 global asset managers responded that they have already outsourced their trading desk or are interested in doing so in the future. In this webinar, Northern Trust Capital Market’s global head of Integrated Trading Solutions, Gary Paulin, will explore: •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 •What firms must do to avoid missing the future
