High Frequency Trading: Challenge and Controversy

Tue, 28/10/2014 (All day)

20% discount available to Global Fund Media Subscribers - Discount Code: HFT1GFM

 
HFT trading captures a range of activities, referring to all computer-managed trading systems which operate with very short holding periods, generate a very high number of quotes for each order that's transacted, and need to locate their servers close to public sources of data because they operate in milliseconds or microseconds.
 
HFT operators claim they enhance market liquidity. Ultra-fast traders, by this account, are helpful intermediaries, smoothing market movements by buying and selling when other investors are not interested. But watchdogs on both sides of the Atlantic worry that HFT creates a false impression of liquidity. The business, they say, takes a standard traders' practice, testing the market with expressions of interest that are not necessarily sincere, to a new level.
To this debate, an enormous amount of sound and fury has been added in the past year, by claims that HFT is, in fact, thoroughly disruptive. Accusations have even been made that HFT is effectively insider dealing.
 
In March the European Parliament voted to regulate financial markets and curb high frequency trading. In May, ESMA launched its detailed consultation on the working rules for MiFID II which suggests the tough definition that traders who send an average of two orders per second to European markets may be considered high frequency and that being designated an HFT trader in one market would apply to all markets. Meanwhile in the US, SEC Chair Mary Jo White has recently promised that the regulator would be ‘addressing high frequency trading and promoting fairness’.

Borrower & Investor Forum on Real Estate Mezzanine Financing & Subordinated Debt

Mon, 10/11/2014 (All day)

You can't have failed to notice recent industry headlines celebrating the return of mezzanine financing. The buzz is warranted.

With first mortgage and construction finance lenders remaining conservative and the continued demand for gap financing, more and more investors are jumping on the mezzanine bandwagon in the intensifying chase for yield.

As competition for good deals and credit-worthy borrowers heats up, lenders are originating loans that fall outside of their core product lines and deal structures are becoming more aggressive.

Increased competition amongst lenders can only signal good news for the borrower community. But with increased options amid an evolving real estate capital market comes a greater need for borrowers to understand the cost of capital in its different forms.

Bringing borrowers and lenders the latest on real estate mezzanine finance in the context of the overall capital stack, we are proud to once again offer IMN's Borrower & Investor Forum on Real Estate Mezzanine Financing & Subordinated Debt, November 10, 2014, New York City.

Key figures within the owner-operator and lending communities convene to discuss strategies for sourcing and arranging financing for new acquisitions, development and refinancing from both perspectives.

Covering the entire capital stack with a focus on mezzanine finance and subordinated debt we also address the latest high-yield debt strategies
for investors.
