The Evolving Role of Cloud in High Speed Financial Data Applications

As the role of cloud in capital markets matures and the range of services evolves, there seems to be innovative integration of colocation and cloud to maximise the unique features of both platforms for latency sensitive use cases.

Our panel of experts review the tradition definitions of on-prem and in-cloud applications and discuss how exchanges, vendors and data consumers are redrawing these lines.

Moderator: Randall Duran, SMU
Wesley Elder, Colt
Burgess Ghyara, LSEG
Hasan Rauf, AWS

4:50 - 5:25 p.m.

Institutional Data Infrastructure for Digital Assets

Crypto is evolving and seems to be more frequently discussed as an “Asset Class” (rather than a disruptive technological innovation). The FTX melt-down heralded a wave of stricter regulation and more recognizable standards of governance in trading and custody.

Join our panel of experts as they discuss how this latest combination of institutional data infrastructure and governance, distributed ledger technology, and tokenization will impact the financial information world.

Moderator: Donald Day, VDX
Anshul Dang, Gemini
Sean Lawrence, Kaiko
Dan Sleep, Northern Trust
Rhys Spencer, Parameta

5:25 - 6:00 p.m.

Large Language Models for Financial Data – Where Will We See the First Disruption?

For the past 12 months, the world has been buzzing with discussions on the applications of LLMs and the implications for the workplace and society in general.

Arguably the use of algorithmic trading technologies in our industry over the past 15 years provides some very interesting precedents for model training and deployment.

Our panel of financial information experts are thinking about how these developments will disrupt our existing (and emergent) financial data processes. We expect a lively discussion ranging from applications of the technology to licensing, regulations and controls.

Moderator: Nimesh Bharadia, ROSE
Martin Haines, KX
Clinton Lee, Bloomberg
Nitesh Uppal, Google
