It's a busy time for Tradeweb, the provider of electronic trading for fixed-income, derivatives, and exchange-traded funds, following a recent announcement that it would be adding an equity trading facility to its list of products. The company, which launched in 1998 as a marketplace for investors to buy and sell US Treasury bonds, will later this year launch the “eBlock” in a joint initiative with Plato Partnerships, a consortium of some of the market’s largest fund managers and banks. The eBlock will enable more efficient risk trading of European cash equity blocks – a type of transaction where significantly large groups of shares or bonds are exchanged at a set price between a buyer and seller. The reason to finally move into equities after 20 years is the result of client demand and the possible impact of the European Union’s Markets in Financial Instruments Directive (MiFID), according to Enrico Bruni, managing director for Tradeweb’s European … [Read more...] about We talk to Tradeweb about how investing has evolved over the last 20 years

But we had hundreds -- we have hundreds that are ready to go. But I said I'm not going to put -- why would I do that when we're talking so nicely?

The value of bitcoin skyrocketed in late 2017 and its rapid rise generated huge amounts of interest in it and the 1,567 other varieties of cryptocurrency available online. However, bitcoin is notoriously volatile and a multitude of financial experts have advised people not to get involved, calling it a bubble that could burst at any moment.

Bitcoin has been surging and falling in recent weeks. And it seems mostly to come down to one thing: regulation. The lack of regulation is, for now, a large part of bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies’ intrigue: they seem to allow people to avoid the traditional restrictions in place in money and other assets. But they’re also part of their bad reputation, with the same anonymity and decentralisation allowing them to be used for crime. Many governments have suggested they could introduce such rules. But it’s still not clear what they’d look like, or how they’d arrive; here’s an attempt to predict what might be to come in that most unpredictable of markets.

The EU has always suffered from unreconciled tensions between the interests of member states and of the EU itself. Across the EU27, the interests of citizens are in securing a free trade deal with the UK across all sectors post-Brexit. If member states were to negotiate directly, then their own democratic national assemblies would judge competing interests for the benefit of their people. By contrast, with Brexit, the Commission controls the negotiations and member states place huge reliance on its analysis. This prompts the question of whether Parliament and Council can operate independently, and balance democratically the economic interests of the EU27 citizens. To date, it would appear the perceived interests of a small handful, or even fewer, of EU27 member states are being prioritised at the expense of the rest. A deal providing for frictionless trade in goods is a no-brainer. The EU27 is now pursuing this. Given the UK’s trade deficit such a deal is largely one-way in … [Read more...] about Is Brussels capable of negotiating a democratic Brexit trade deal?
