In the finance industry, precision timing is everything. Regulators globally are increasing their focus on the issues of secure, precision time synchronization for financial transactions. Successful trading now means having a sense of time that goes beyond the basics of day/date/time to encompass an understanding of the latest evolving time synchronization and technology alternatives. How is time delivered over the network? How can it be traced back to a trusted source that confirms transaction timing down to the microsecond?
The Time and Money workshop helps to answer these questions by bringing together not only finance and trading software specialists, but also telecom experts—the professionals managing time for the entire network. It will deliver high-level insight on how time transfer actually works and how time gets to the user; issues surrounding secure timing and available alternatives; as well as the European Union’s MiFID II (Markets in Financial Instruments Directive) and how it may affect precision time stamping in the U.S.
Time and Money assembles the leading collection of time transfer and delivery experts in North American closely coupled with the world’s longest running timing and synchronization workshop, the NIST-ATIS Workshop on Synchronization in Timing Systems, thus affording the financial community unique access this community of experts.
