Issue #6 – September 2017
The next issue of FX-MM magazine goes to press on 16 August 2017 and will feature:
- Treasury, trading and technology review: buy-side FX trading
Author – Paul Golden
With the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive II (MiFID II) on the horizon, buy-side firms – such as asset managers – that don’t have a detailed understanding of FX are going to have to get up to speed pretty quickly. FX-MM looks at whether firms have sufficient understanding of FX market pricing and distribution, the extent to which they review and update their execution management systems and their use of transaction cost analysis.
- Intelligent treasury
Author – Rebecca Brace
Brace Replacing manual processes and centralising outdated structures is no longer sufficient. In order to remain effective in the current market, treasurers must re-engineer their systems in order to use digital information flows effectively. Developments such as artificial intelligence and blockchain are presenting interesting opportunities to achieve this. FX-MM investigates what intelligent treasury looks like and how can companies achieve this in practice.
- IFRS 9: a survival guide
Author – Eleanor Hill
With just months to go until the effective date, banks across the globe still have much work to do on IFRS 9. Not necessarily around implementation, but on the wider strategic changes that the new standard demands. FX-MM examines the latest developments around IFRS 9 and asks how banks can turn this accounting change into a business model opportunity.
- Cybercrime: a systemic threat to financial services
Author – Neil Dennis
The recent spate of cyberattacks worldwide has underlined the importance of cybersecurity and has put pressure on banks to reassure customers and clients that their IT systems are able to keep their money safe. FX-MM examines the threats and possible solutions surrounding the cyber-safety of the financial services industry.
Now entering our 25th year, FX-MM magazine examines the issues that bankers, corporate treasurers, fund managers, traders, brokers and technology vendors face in the international financial markets. FX-MM focuses on treasury, trading and technology, and is the only monthly magazine which serves all of these sectors effectively.
