London, UK - 22 January 2007

To succeed in today’s algorithmic trading market, low latency decision making is essential. Firms face the challenges of exploding volumes of fast moving data and to gain a competitive edge, they need to monitor, analyse and act on this data in milliseconds. This enables them to respond to market opportunities as they happen. Event processing platforms are now providing buy- and sell-side firms with a rich, multi-faceted environment for developing and deploying sophisticated algorithmic strategies, as well as the ability to manage risk in real time.

To explore these issues, Dr. Giles Nelson, Director of Technology, Progress Software, vendor of the leading algorithmic trading solution Progress® Apama®, will host a seminar entitled ‘Accelerated Decision Making: How Event Processing is Powering Algorithmic Trading, Risk Management and More’, at Finexpo London on Wednesday 24 January. The seminar will outline the requirements for a complete algorithmic trading solution – such as flexibility, scalability and the ability to meet changing regulatory demands – and examine how advances in event processing are helping leading organisations to meet those requirements. The seminar, which begins at 9:00am, will provide an insight into accelerated decision making in today’s electronic trading markets.
