Time and Money: The Workshop on Time Sync in Financial Markets Provides Expert Insight into Delivering Accurate Time for Financial Transactions

Including how the European MiFID II may affect precision time stamping in the U.S.

by ATIS | @atisupdates | Sept. 22, 2016

What: With increased regulatory focus on the issues of secure, precision time synchronization for financial transactions, ATIS holds the first-ever Workshop on Time Sync in Financial Markets to bring together not only finance and trading software specialists, but also telecom experts--the professionals managing time for the entire network--to discuss the leading issues in time transfer today and what it takes to deliver accurate time for financial transactions. Beyond the regulatory imperative, the Workshop will show how precision timing can be used to enhance financial institutions' operational excellence.

When and Where: Wednesday, Jan. 25, 2017. New York Stock Exchange, New York, NY.

Background: In today's market, successful trading 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 delivering 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 the how it may affect precision time stamping in the U.S. You will hear from experts developing the latest timing and sync technologies, the National Institute of Standards and Technology, IEEE, the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and more.

Highlights: Morning Keynote by Bob Kolasky, Deputy Assistant Secretary, Office of Infrastructure Protection, Department of Homeland Security

Closing Keynote - "Speed and Latency in U.S. Equity Markets" by Austin Gerig, Assistant Director - Office of Research and Data Services, Division of Economic and Risk Analysis, U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission
