The FX market led fixed income trading towards automation, and now nearly 90% of spot FX volumes are traded electronically. Beyond spot FX, other longer-dated instruments such as FX swaps and non-deliverable forwards still rely on manual pricing. It also somewhat lags behind asset classes, such as fixed income, where low- and no-touch workflows have become common.

This FX Markets webinar delves into the evolution of FX trading desks, the challenges to automating trade workflows and what vendors and liquidity providers are doing to address this.

Key discussion points include:

  • What is driving the demand for automation in the FX market, and what is holding it back?
  • What steps liquidity providers are taking to automate their FX trading workflows and improve overall efficiency
  • How trading platforms and technology vendors can advance the industry's automation journey
  • Strategies for banks to optimise their trading platforms and enhance efficiency, including the importance of data management in creating a comprehensive trading picture.
