ISC: Trading has changed, have you?
The world of sell side trading has undergone considerable change over the last ten years. Driven by increased regulation and margin compression the sell side has significantly reduced market making inventory and capital-intensive trading activity.
For the buyside, this sell side evolution, coupled with the introduction of MiFID II (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (2004/39/EC)) has resulted in a reduction of what can be termed as the “relationship value” that was once inherent in the brokerage/execution process.
With these changes, and the continuous evolution that additional regulation brings, how have buy side trading teams evolved?
