Deep Dive Interview | Refinitiv

In the first episode of our new Deep Dive Interview series, we take a look at algos. They have become an increasingly important part of the trading landscape. The proliferation of exchanges often trading the same underlying asset, plus the need to be able to trade across multiple asset classes at the same time has seen demand for these products surge. Medan Gabbay, chief revenue officer at Quod Financial outlines what algos are and what they do, before Alexis Laming, senior trader of Banque de France, the country’s central bank, explains the user case for algo products, as well as some of their benefits and their pitfalls.
