About the Program

Equities Trading & The Cloud is a three-part, invitation-only virtual event series for IT, trading, infrastructure, innovation, and technology leaders working in capital markets nationwide. It convenes with two goals in mind:

  • Discuss cloud migration best practices from our expert panel featuring Instinet, AWS, and Risk Focus
  • Participate in topic-specific break out room video discussions with your peers 

About the Content

When approached in the optimal way, a cloud strategy can unlock, amplify, and seamlessly integrate enterprise-scale data. This can be the lifeblood of machine learning and artificial intelligence technology—continuously applying real-time analytics, accelerating decision making, and enhancing execution performance for institutional investors.  

In a heavily regulated, high-performance industry like Equities Trading, moving to the cloud requires consideration of security and compliance needs before the benefits of cloud can be achieved. How can we leverage the cloud to add value to each trade without introducing unwanted latency and systemic risks?

Join Instinet and Risk Focus with AWS for a candid discussion about the challenges, opportunities, and emerging best practices as they move forward on the Equities Trading journey to the cloud.

Discussion Topics

  • How do you prepare and manage the disparate teams that are involved – both operationally and culturally, and what does it mean to form a “Cloud Culture”?
  • What are some common approaches to moving massive amounts of on-prem historical data, and how are security and compliance being addressed in the process? 
  • What are some of the key benefits to moving data off premises?
  • Is a cloud strategy critical to the development of AI and ML? How and why?
  • What is the best way to formulate a strategy for identifying the right goals and KPIs? 
  • What are the pre-, during, and post-migration steps for Quant and Execution teams, the technology organization, product management, and operations?
  • How should you break the cloud journey down into achievable, incremental steps over a migration time horizon?
  • How do you create a strategy for applying the cloud to new, advanced offerings and services—including ML and AI capabilities? How can you be sure you’re building effective solutions to real problems, versus “solutions in search of problems”?
