THE 2015 CBS SYMPOSIUM ON HIGH-FREQUENCY TRADING
The Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy and the Department of Finance are proud to announce the 2015 CBS Symposium on High-Frequency Trading taking place on October 5, 2015 at Copenhagen Business School.
In recent years financial markets have undergone a huge transformation driven by technology and regulation. Keywords are market structure and high-speed algorithms. Both the structure of the markets in which participants operate and the behavior of those participants have seen a phase shift towards increasing fragmentation and digitalization where trades take place in micro- or even nanoseconds.
This one-day symposium at Copenhagen Business School will bring together leading academic and industry experts to shed light on the current state of HFT. Key questions to be addressed are:
- What is the current status of the HFT industry and what challenges for competitiveness does the turn to HFT entail?
- Are institutional investors being picked off by these faster market participants?
- What are the differences between the US and European markets in terms of the regulation of HFT?
- What does the future of HFT look like?
The symposium is organized by the The Sapere Aude ‘Crowd Dynamics in Financial Markets’ Research Project at the Department of Management, Politics and Philosophy jointly with the Department of Finance and supported by The CBS Competitiveness Platform and Danish Society for Education and Business
The symposium will take place at Råvarebygningen, Porcelænshaven 22, 2000 Frederiksberg, Danmark.
