For high frequency traders (HFTs), complying with new obligations that will come into force under MiFID II, and proving compliance, will pose some significant technical challenges.
Stephen Donnelly, Endace’s CTO, gave a presentation comparing GPS and PTP timing accuracy at the STAC Summit in London (May 10) and he will also be presenting at STAC Chicago (May 17). Endace’s CEO, Stu Wilson, will present at the STAC Summit in New York (June 13).
Stephen also attended STAC’s Essentials of MiFID 2 Time Compliance workshop in London on Monday. This workshop was an excellent opportunity for HFTs to get up-to-speed with what the new MiFID II requirements mean for their organizations and how to prepare for them. More on what came out of this in our next newsletter.
We’re looking forward to the opportunity to catch up with our HFT customers at all three STAC events. If you haven’t yet registered for STAC Chicago or New York but are interested in attending, let us know.
