Looking back on 2018 I think we can all agree that we achieved a great amount as an industry. That being said, I don’t see things slowing down in 2019. Brexit will obviously be in the headlines and will continue to take up a lot of resource on buy-side, sell-side and execution venues alike. Regulatory and political developments, particularly on periodic auctions, tick-size regimes, mid-point trading and SIs have the capacity to change market structure yet again in 2019.
