ActivTrades’ London Financial Forum 2019 is a one-day conference that will aim to provide a meaningful discourse on the most pressing issues facing the online trading community and help you take control of your trading performance.
In an era where political, economic and regulatory tides shift constantly, the face of contemporary online trading continues to transform irrevocably. From “once in a generation decision” like Brexit to regulatory restrictions imposed by ESMA, online traders continue to face both new opportunities and challenges.
The conference, based on the theme ‘Navigating an Evolving Financial Landscape’ will offer an interactive programme that will address the needs of today’s traders by providing impartial, high-quality insights into the current political and economic environment and challenge participants to rethink their roadmap for successful trading in 2019 and beyond.
