Sam Tyfield, a Partner in Vedder Price’s London office and a member of the firm’s Investment Services and Finance & Transactions groups, recently participated in the Battle of the Quants event in London on June 26. His panel, titled “HFT: US vs. Europe Comparison and How the Canadians Nailed It!” explored the different structures employed in the United States, Europe and Canada and how each is evolving. Another topic of discussion included FINRA’s recent request for detailed trading information and how this could affect whether the development and innovation of financial markets will be determined by regulatory agencies rather than by the free markets.

The Battle of the Quants is the leading forum for discussion on cutting-edge quantitative strategies and ideas, and its participants include investors, managers and academics. The conference combines the various quant disciplines in one location to explore and discuss the critical issues confronting the quantitative approach to finance.
