Locations: Thomson Reuters, 30th Floor, AZIA Centre, No.1233, Lujiazui Ring Rd, Shanghai

The themes for this event are quantitative trading, unstructured data and market data infrastructure. We will discuss how systematic tools can enhance a fundamental strategy with specific examples for “connect” trading between exchanges. China financial professionals are leveraging a variety of chat and sentiment information services for trading. We will discuss the content and integration with trading systems. As part of the market data infrastructure theme we will discuss how financial institutions use platforms to process consolidated feeds of traceable prices, the “heavy lifting” performed by the feeds and platforms to normalize information for quantitative processing.
