“Our firm is made for this kind of market”, said CEO Doug Cifu after the August 24 stock rout. And regretted his remark immediately. Investors can’t stand it when a HFT CEO is trumpeting how much money they made, when regular investors lose. Anyway, this year that kind of market has been going on for weeks.
Enough to talk about. How convenient, the FOW Amsterdam event is coming up shortly. On March 10th, to be specific. Just like last year the location is Amsterdam Hilton. After a long day of interesting discussions, there will be an equally interesting gala diner and drinks.
See here for the list of speakers and topics. There are interesting speakers I’m looking forward to hear. Attendants will be folks from every relevant firm in the business. FOW made a list of firms sending delegates to last year’s edition. I hope the company names on the name badges will be without those errors.
