Stockholm School of Economics in Riga is one of Europe’s leaders in providing business education according to recent rankings by The Financial Times. EXANTE is proud of its asssociation with SSE as a gold member and on the 23rd January 2015, gave a guest lecture on finance and algorithmic trading.
Sergey Troshin, EXANTE’s Director of Infrastructure, gave an informative talk to the students of the business school and shared the company’s journey from a private hedge fund to a Maltese-based broker. Moreover, he provided his insight into the world of manual and automated trading using various technical analysis.
“Algorithmic trading has been developing for many years and continues to evolve. Therefore, traders not only implement the well-established strategies, but develop new ones. However, regardless of the strategies, it is of paramount importance that your broker meets specific technical as well as technological requirements,” - said the company’s Director.
Using EXANTE as a vivid example, Sergey Troshin discussed the various types of algorithmic trading and what demands they set for a broker.
In addition, EXANTE spoke to the dean of SSE in Riga Dr. Anders Paalzow in order to inquire on the advantages of having such companies as the prime-online broker at the business school and discuss what can EXANTE teach the students that no other company can.
The lecture by Sergey Troshin was a huge success as it was followed by numerous questions from the students in the Q&A session. The recording of EXANTE’s visit to the university is available via the following link. The video will be of great interest not only to professional traders, but also to beginners as it is essential for all to understand how a broker really works.
