Today marks the end of the first week for the FFI. The response we’ve had since its launch has exceeded even our most optimistic expectations and so thanks to everyone who has been involved in making it happen. It is very rewarding to be a part of something that really seems to have captured people’s attention and imagination. We have had over 20,000 hits on the site this week and amongst them we’ve had registrations from right across Europe and the US and I even heard that the FFI was being discussed at a trade show in Singapore. We have also had many valuable suggestions and comments although we need to change the site to make it easier for people to comment directly on each blog rather than through the comments page.
Looking forward to TradeTech Liquidity next week – I think one of the more interesting debates will be the morning session on how traditional exchanges are responding to the new MTFs. I am sure the new liquidity pioneers will put up a good show and it will be interesting to see how the newly appointed Baikal CEO, Dr John Wilson, performs and whether he sees himself as batting for the traditional exchanges or the new MTFs.
Thanks for supporting the site and being part of it.
