FIA’s 9th Annual International Derivatives Expo (#IDX2016) took place last week at The Brewery in London, with over 1,800 delegates attending from around the world—a record for the conference. Even with the record number, though, IDX gave us an opportunity to spend quality, face-to-face time with many peers and partners in the industry, particularly those from Europe and Asia/Pacific. TT had a brand new stand at the show’s exhibit hall, where we had sales and product managers from both Chicago and London giving demos of the key benefits and new functionality of the TT platform.

As always, the IDX panels were a highlight of the conference, as we heard industry experts and leaders share their views on pressing topics. Brexit was the big topic in London, with a great deal of conversation about potential ramifications for the industry. But technology was also a big topic, particularly with regard to compliance and regulation. This was a key point from the “New Directions” panel, featuring CEOs from six of the world’s largest exchanges.

We’re not just improving existing functionality, we’re also branching out into completely new spaces. Visitors to our stand got a sneak peek at our options trading functionality and saw some of the new charting and analytics features coming to the TT platform.
